Title: Veggie Still Life
Year Created: 2003
Dimension: 16 x 20
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I realized that I have two of tomatoes, corn and onions. Should I add another tomato?

Yeah...it may need something over on the viewer right behind the foreground onion. Also not sure why but the celery in the jug is kind of distracting...maybe it's too "straight" up...not sure. Overall nice job!:)

I looked at this last night, but decided to wait and see because my overall feeling was simple... I love it. I love the bright colors, I love the Van Gough effect of black around the vegetables... but there was something... .
You have not used the black Van Gough effect around the celery so it stands out as different and too soft around the edges. The rest of the composition pops.

I just realized you were only asking us about the tomato composition. I think the two work fine. I don't think the red reflection of the two tomatos would be so perfectly curved. Place something round in front of a vase or lamp and see if the reflection is that mirror perfect with ceramic.

cute in it's own right .. a little centered for me but hey, that's not a big thing.

I love the style and colors. I have a fondness for the black outlining in paintings. However the two tomatoes so centered does bother me. Rather than adding another, I would take out the right hand one.
Also, the pitcher is on an entirely different plane that the rest of the piece. This may be intentional, and if so, then ignore me. But I would like to see it from looking down as we are in the rest of this pretty painting.

Some really interesting comments and critiques. I appreciate the critiques. I made some changes....did this help or should I put this one aside for an abstract?
ginia....HOW do you always know it is me?? *LOL*

What you did with the celery made the whole composition work for me. I love it. This is really nice.:clap: :clap:
