Painting Eggplant

My recipe for painting eggplant is pretty simple. Begin with Arches 140# hot press paper. Draw simple out line of vegetable. Paint eggplant with water, being mindful of contours. It is a good thing if the eggplant has some dry areas. Then, using a variety of blues and purples, drop in color without fussing. Put down the colors and walk away. I use a combination of ultramarine, cerulean, cobalt and Windsor blue along with mineral violet and another purple who's name I've forgotten.

Paint the leaves after the eggplant is completely dry.
