Cabbage leaves glowing with backlighting, painted in acrylics

Cabbage Leaves 40″w x 30″h acrylic on canvas

Backlit cabbage leaves glow with a range of soft greens and speaks of the joy of summer gardening. This particular loose leaf cabbage grew so well because I accidentally planted it in the hoop house thinking it was kohlrabi. Even though it greatly exceeded the space available, it made a lovely subject for a painting.

This painting was included in my recent book, Creating Exceptional Color in Acrylics and is available to purchase.
