A continuation of fruit and vegetables series completed with a quick proportion pencil sketch and then watercolor with no ink. Swiss Chard is a leafy green vegetable often used in Mediterranean cooking. In the Flavescens-Group-cultivars, the leaf stalks are large and are often prepared separately from the leaf blade. The leaf blade can be green or reddish in color; the leaf stalks also vary in color, usually white, yellow, or red. Chard has highly nutritious leaves making it a popular addition to healthful diets. Chard has been used bt cooks for centuries. Daniel Smith and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
