Watercolor Carrots

As the gray days of winter drag on, I'm thinking ahead to sunny days and spring greens.  Just about anything that's green and growing lifts my spirits (excepting mold and slime of course)!

I wish I could buy carrots at the store with the leafy green stems still on so I could paint from a real subject, but my grocery store chops off all the pretty leaves. I painted this carrot painting from an online photo.  It sill works!

What gets you through winter?  I could not live without my watercolors, warm blankets, and hot chocolate.

  1. I love your cheerful watercolor carrots!
    I was also feeling dreary- need more sun! I always did think I was related to plants - so I put a sprouty old carrot top in some water to entertain the kids & actually we are all enjoying looking at that leafy green goodness in January (even the husband)! I will try to figure out how to send a pic to you in case you feel like painting it :)
