First Try

Artichoke - 6"x 6" - Oil on Canvas Panel
I have three beautiful artichokes, bought just for painting. This is my first attempt at making a completed painting of it. I like it some, however I am going to try again tomorrow and see if I can simplify the painting and make it a stronger piece.
An artichokes is a wonderful object to paint, it is so complex. I did not realize it until attempting to paint one.

Thanks, first trys sometimes provide mixed results. And I liked the exercise in tyring to make the artichoke more simple while being true to its form
