Oil Painting: Potatoes

Bowl of Potatoes
Media: Oil Paint on Canvas
Size: 4" x 4" x 1.5"

I really liked painting these fingerling potatoes from my garden.  The opposite of the painting Eggs in a Bowl, these shapes were not hard-edged.  This presents a completely different set of problems, dimples can't be too dimply, curves can't be too curvy.  Every edge still has an exactness to it for it to breathe.  A neighbor friend of mine bought this painting for her husband who loves potatoes.
