One Tomato, Two Tomatoes, 6x6 Oil

SOLD

Thanks so much guys, for your support of yesterday's post - I had responses immediately (and a sale!). I will continue to play and learn with more of that texture and transparency painting. Today, though, a set of little tomatoes from our garden. I loved the light shining through the tomatoes, and their long, curling ... what are those things near the stem? First I painted the background too warm - it didn't let the tomatoes have the 'spotlight' so much.

The next post will have a step-by-step series of images... maybe you'll enjoy that - I enjoyed thinking about it and doing it!

  8. Thanks Pat, and Myra! Rhonda and Pam - I held my breath while I was doing the leaves! Debbi, that's so nice coming from YOU! Anytime, Manon, you're the inspiration here! You know, Edward, I think they are NOT Juliet's because I would have remembered that name... (can't remember the actual name, though!). Gracias Sal and Jo-Ann!
