"Parsnip" by Jonathan Aller

6 x 6 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Parsnips have an interesting look to them, their shape and rough skin textures make them intriguing to paint.  I also enjoy painting on top of the under wash thats applied to the canvas prior to the alla prima session, it creates a vignette for the final painting.  I also like the movement this parsnip creates with its silhouette, seems as if it's blowing in the wind. 

You can see the making of the painting on my blog:
