You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato - Huh???
I had this great abandon while painting this tribute to Tomatoes. My son-in-law is an avid plant person. His fav - tomatoes.
I teased him by telling him I was painting him "garage art" for his August birthday. That means that this painting was not meant to be precious. No offense would be taken if it ended up hanging over the door to the chicken coop. Yes, they have chickens!!!
It was a different painting experience, one I totally enjoyed. I took more time setting up the still life and preparing the canvas then it did the actual painting. Preparation is key.
Here are a couple of versions . And, oh, I should say that I used a larger canvas than usual because I came into a rickety but usable studio easel for $30. Deal.
Oops- deleted most of the pre-versions! My phone keeps yelling at me about my use of storage!
One last thing, you can follow my son-in-law's blog - "TALK DIRT TO ME"
Of course I chose the entry with a picture of his tomatoes!!!!
