I usually end up with five tomatoes since I end up eating one before I get around to painting them. The tomatoes are a nice backup painting subject when I don't have time to plein air and they last long. When I buy raspberries I have to paint them right away.
I started this on the white ground, not that I would recommend it, I was just in a hurry. Painting on a neutral ground makes it easier.

Love the combination of red and blue background, your tomatoes just glow!!ReplyDelete
