Next Up, Tomato

Here's my first cut at a tomato in the same style as the previous exercise. I'll probably be up for another try or two with this one. Once again I'm working with a staining, Permanent Rose, and an easy-lifting pigment, Viridian. I love it when these two mix on paper.


  1. I'm back! I took a little self imposed techi break this past week after returning from the islands but my curiosity has gotten the best of me and I just had to see what you've been up to with your watercolor class; and I have been richly rewarded with what has met my eyes- these onions especially are fantastic! I really like your dry brush work from last week as well (June 27). There's something particularly pleasing with the piece you shared in your June 29th post "lifting areas of pigment"; it has a fresh contemporary asian feel.
    So glad you are enjoying this class although I cannot believe you are more than halfway through it!

  2. Well welcome back, Gretchen. Although I can appreciate your technical abstinence, I'm glad you're here again.

    The onions are my first "real" subject. Prior to that, everything's been simply imaginings. I am very rusty with my drawing.

    Ya, less than three weeks left. I'll soon be onto new adventures...
