The Naked Carrot - As I rarely do 'nudes' and my gallery is having an "In the Raw" exhibition, I have submitted a little wood engraving entitled "La Carotte Nue"

5cm x 5cm (2"x2")

I also had a go at hand colouring, here is the naked carrot in all her glory.
For my inspiration, check our Manet's Olympia
