Red Tomatoes........

I was at the supermarket and they had these luscious red tomatoes on the the vine. I decided they would make a wonderful still life to paint. After unpacking them I set them up on the counter with enough lighting to make wonderful shadows. I then photographed them for our next class "Watercolor with Jean".

I could resist painting them myself.

At the beginning of my next class I set up the projector with my tomato photograph, and the class went to work painting tomatoes. It's always fun teaching how to create light and shadows. It's a project that will go into next week's class, but the class got a good start.
