Blaney's Fava Beans

My painter friend, Blaney has a spot at the farmer's market, where she sells locally grown vegetables. I had never SEEN a fava bean, much less eaten one! Blaney told me they were great, (and they looked interesting to paint) so I got some. They are good to eat, and good to paint. The background color is sort of blue-gray laverdery, I thought it looked good with the fresh spring green of the beans. I don't know if the photo accurately captures this color.
