For Assignment 8 for my Diploma in Botanical Illustration through Society of Botanical Artists in UK, I chose radishes. Radishes are one of my favorite early spring vegetables, crunchy and refreshing, a nice change after winter filled with chocolate and more chocolate. I remember eating regular red radishes as well as black radishes in Poland, but nowadays, you can find a wider variety of radishes such as the watermelon radish and the Asian purple radish. I found the textures and colors of all the radishes intriguing, especially the watermelon radish. I have been slicing them like mini chips and eating for a healthy snack. I went through lots of radishes for this project!
