• Bunch Of Beets

Additional Information

Bunch of Beets by Helen Evans – Bunch of beets is part of a series of simple still lives. The series was originally conceived as part mindfulness and part teaching exercise. My studio had been in chaos due to renovations and I started this series as a way to get back to basics, painting simple setups exploring the quality of light in my studio. The paintings were made during the fall and spring with the objects set up in full sunlight to best capture the strong shadows. The background and foreground are mainly white. As a child I hated beetroot, it was just too purple. When I lived in Bermuda I had a friend who had a farm shop and she talked me into buying beets, she told me to steam them not pickle them. I loved them and every time I cook beets I think of Nancy.

I often use still life in my teaching practice. Reflected light and strong value are difficult for beginners to understand so this series has proved to be a helpful visual for my students. This is an original painting, acrylic on a 3mm ply cradle panel, with pine sides.
