During my youth I applied (unsuccessfully) for Bath Academy. For the test piece I had to paint a sliced cabbage. I didn't like it, so I painted it again in monochrome. Much better - only apparently they didn't think so! Your image reminded me of it. Very powerful. (Yours, n ot mine.)
Adrian - Thank you sir.Dave - I am quite sure if they could have seen what a great artist you would be come you would have been the first one admitted. I remember my first school did not make me happy. I must have done it three times.
Flowers and leaves in black and white are one of my favorite things. You really don't see the form and lines of them with all the color. Beautiful, Carl.
victoria you are so right. The form and lines get lost in color shots. When I shoot them for color it is always about the play of foreground and background colors.
