This piece was executed over the course of a week during the middle of April 2014. It took a bit of time because I collected and boiled various plant materials to use for this reproduction including artichoke, beet, red cabbage, coffee, red onion and yellow onion. In order to push the contrast I incorporated a small amount of sumi ink, blue India Ink, tumeric and paprika (finely ground spices in water).
