FINISHED: Wip - Tomatoes, basil & garlic

This ref can be found in the RIL.

This will be 28.5X11 inches. Not sure what the paper is but it seems to be a fairly fine grain with F-C Polys.
Colours used so far: Cad Yellow, Orange Glaze, Cad Orange, Deep Red, Ceranium Lake, Blue Violet.

First tomato blended with my trusty-dusty bristle blender brush and worked on the next tomato.

The second tomato blended and a partial colour of the third.

Re: Wip - Tomatoes, basil & garlic

Looks beautiful so far - it's a very complicated painting, I've seen this reference done in Pastels, and it's a long way to go. I'm sure you'll make it into a wonderful piece.

Re: Wip - Tomatoes, basil & garlic

ZB3: welcome aboard. All I can say is, I hope this lives up to the way it started.

Susan:

Art:

Assaf: it is a very popular reference. I have done it in acrylics. I love the way the light comes through the colander onto the tomato and the reflections.

MYpencil: hiya

Gary: me too....need breakfast. Actually need coffee first.

Elen: for some reason I do not like the feel of Prismacolors. Hope you will enjoy the WIP and I will continue to list the colours for you

I'll be watching this closely Carol, you are as good at CP as you are graphite. It is wonderful to see your work in the forum.

I did notice there was no graphite! You made the leap!

Did I mention I'll be around with snacks and beverages for the group? Possibly some bruschetta......
