Cabbage and Lemon
Here is the first cabbage and a leftover California lemon with a shriveled leaf. I am having second thoughts about loving the cabbage. Timing is everything. What I need is a better understanding of values and getting them down correctly the first time and I think simpler subjects would be more helpful. The cabbage is beautiful, though, with endless facets and folds and surprising grays. Maybe it's possible to simplify it, but I will have to fight myself all the way because my natural inclination is to make everything more complicated.
