Watercolor over Gesso
White Charcoal Pencil on Black Paper
We got these gorgeous golden beets in our weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share, and I was way more excited about painting them than eating them.
I did the white-over-black gesso underpainting first, intending to add color over the top. But then I liked in it black and white so much that I did an extra white charcoal drawing on black paper so I could have it both ways.
