White Rose and Physalis
Just managed to finish this still life despite the groggy feeling from the heavy cold I am having at the moment. Have come across these physalis in Tesco the other and was surprised to find out that it's the same kind of plant that I have recently come across near our house. Those fascinating, all dried up, transparent lanterns in the pink glass vase which I painted the other day and these full bodied and utterly delicious fruits are in fact brothers... or sisters. I love painting withered textures and colours and I absolutely love reflections.
