New Study

Just started this little "Tomato Study" today in preparation for a much larger painting.  Last year I picked these tomatoes at the home of my friend's son and daughter-in-law.  In addition to providing an interesting subject for a painting, they were really delicious!  I'm so looking forward to some fresh tomatoes again this summer!

  1. Kara, Your watercolors are amazing.....I mean the patience you must have! Certainly your skill is the best. Those strawberry seeds must have driven you nuts. I find watercolors so difficult, but using gouache and a more forgiving paper I can enjoy.

  2. If that's just a study...I can't wait to see the larger painting. I agree with Kathryn, your watercolours ARE amazing! I can't get on with them at all!!
    Thank you for your lovely comments at my blog. :-)

  3. This perspective is great. The star shape amoung the round is eyecatching. The way the holes circle the leaf also helps to bring the eye into the painting. You also have the lost and found edges down.

  4. Thank you everyone for your kind comments. C. Dingman, your observations are very helpful. I'd like to say all of the composition was totally planned . . . but some things you point out, just happened. I very much appreciate that you're bringing to light, elements that I may not have intentionally included in this painting, but work. Going forward, I'll have more to think about during my designing stages. I really love that intellectual challenge about creating art, it's exciting! :) Thanks again to everyone . . . blogging and connecting with other artists has been extremely inspiring for me.


Thank you so much for commenting!
