Here we have a group of friends, painting one picture a day, encouraging, and challenging each other, and having fun!
We breath, we create!
Woo-hoo Colleen. Good for you, they look good. I am not sure about the blue shadows, but I love your reflections and shadows..
Thanks JJ. The blue did get away from me a bit but I didn't want to puddle in it and end up in a bigger mess.
I agree with JJ! reflections and shadows are great! Try putting some tomato color over the blue shadows (to add warmth and tie the blue in with the rest of the tomato(s)...work wet over DRY!!
Thanks Sandy. It may be better if I just start anew.
No! Don't start again...there is too much good work going on in your painting.If all else fails, turn it into a mixed media ...maybe with w/c and /or pastel or coloured pencil or even collage.
Sandy is right, add some warmth to it, altho with watercolours I don't know how to fix this as easily as with acrylics.
these look like what we call heirloom tomatoes.I like the colors, but the other comments are probably words to the wise.
Try putting some tomato color over the blue shadows (to add warmth and tie the blue in with the rest of the tomato(s)...work wet over DRY!!That is a great suggestion from Sandy. Bring the painting with you to our next paint together. I was thinking tomorrow, I keep meaning to ring, but by the time I remember it is 11.00pm. Tad late to ring then lolI will ring you now actually! :-D
They certainly are different Colleen .....but different is good too!! ...well done!
Mimi, Thank you . Good luck at the art fair.
Thank you Anne. I think the colours were promoted by my printer.
Bruce, I think watercolours are fairly unforgiving once off on the wrong track. They are for me anyway, so I may be wiser to regard my blue tomatoes as a lesson learned.
Colleen, I have certainly learned a lot form this thread. Where do I find the reference photo?
mackb...hi!! I posted the tomato reference photo just over a week ago.Just look back a bit.
