Impasto radishes. Hmmm - this technique has the potential to be very loose and fun, but this is a horrible example because I was learning as I went along. About halfway through I figured out that it is nothing like painting. You don't brush the paint onto the canvas, you lay it on like plastering a hole. And you don't plan each brushstroke before you put it down, you sort of clag it on then decide if you like it. If not, you move it about a bit more until you do like it.

The leaves are the most abstract area of painting, I see why you like it more than the radishes themselves.
