The challenge of painting tomato red accented with the green of the stems was just so much fun that I did it, again! Ironically, my favorite tomato (bottom right) is the one I spent the least amount of time working on. It frequently happens in painting that overworking an area makes that part lose some it’s “vitality” or “freshness,” mainly referring to the quality of the brushwork. I did all of my problem solving working through the first two tomatoes; so much so, that my third tomato went down just the way I wanted it to. That’s a really great feeling!
