The Beetroot in the garden are growing very well this year, probably because they were not decimated by slugs and other critters at the early critical stage of their lives.
As anyone who grows their own vegetables will tell you, home grown taste so much better than anything you can find in the supermarkets. This week I wanted to paint a beetroot before preparing it for the cooking pot. I love the dark red stems and veins which I mixed with permanent rose and permanent magenta with a little French Ultramarine. I used Saunders Waterford HP paper.
