Rustic Still Life With Beetroot

I thought of root vegetables as lending themselves well to rustic still life work. Bunches of beets caught my eye at the supermarket with their dusty mauve surface and straggly roots. I bought one of them and also a butternut squash to lean the beets against. The green speckled courgette was also my choice as it makes for a nice colour and surface contrast. It also suits the desaturated look I wanted to create. I was pleased my antique earthenware ginger beer bottle found its place here too. And finally I had to add something reddish, as usual. I am a bit of a red colour freak in my photography! This time it had to be my little vintage red chilli oil bottle.

  3. Hvala vam, puno, obadvoma!
    Razimisljala sam da prodajem printeve, Davore, ali ne znam koji sajt odabrati. Isto se bojim da prodaja ne bi isla jako dobro kad svako moze s interneta besplatno skinuti kaj hoce i malo ljudi postuje autorsko pravo.
    Pozzzi tebi,
    Vesna
