8 x 10 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I started off with a dry brush approach, getting the right placement on the canvas and make it somewhat interesting visually.
I then went into the wooden base and did the same, adding the local colors and getting a general feel.
I then went into the background and added the grey bluish tone and blended the edges with the wooden base and tomatoes. I took the edges of the left tomato further than the right to give more of a focal point to the tomato on the right.
After messing around with the edges I went back into the wooden base and added the details. I also went back into the tomatoes and pushed the darks darker and blended other areas further to give the smooth feel that the skin of the tomato gives off. This painting was a lot of fun to do overall, I hope you enjoyed this one!
