Tomatoes in Copper Colander
I completed this painting during the weekend - a good activity for cold, snowy weather ...it is a painting for my intermediate watercolor class to paint. It is 8" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
It is painted from a photo on the Paint My Picture web site and the photographer is Lillian Bell. I am unhappy that the camera read the colors so strongly- especially the reds in the tomatoes. They are not that intense in the painting.
The most difficult thing to paint in this painting was the background, and then the tomatoes. I could not get them to look like tomatoes and finally gave up.
