After many requests we are revisiting this little composition to add in the green beans. I once made my class of students paint long thin green vegetables for a whole term, which resulted in them painting beautiful flower stems thereafter; my students protested but it was an excellent training for stem painting.

Here the shadows where they overlap are key to making them appear round, the greens are fun to mix too, once you start you will be in bean heaven and will cover page after page with green beans, see if you don't 😊

Happy Green Bean day to you all, Billy x

Available to watch in full from Monday, June 18th with our paid monthly and annual subscription plans.
