fruit and floral nightshade

fruit and floral nightshade - student project

Some deadly nightshade growing near my house brought to mind the story of Snow White and inspired this painting. This is the result, using reference photos I took - I didn't touch the nightshade! - and an apple from my lunch. The final touch was the evil Queen's crown in the background (I just Googled it for reference). I think its a lovely looking plant despite being poisonous. It's also now in my Society6 shop.fruit and floral nightshade - image 1 - student project
