Artichoke Head in Charcoal
H800mm x W750mm
The artichoke stands tall in all ways in the vegetable garden and is a majestic subject for the artist to draw. The globe artichoke is a thistle which came originally from countries in the Southern Mediterranean. The deeply lobed leaves trap dense shadows which provide a very strong contrast with the areas of the artichoke that catch the light. It is a subject which is always a thrill to draw and paint.
