Corn, Tomatoes, & Onions


Garden Fresh (8 x 10 Oil on canvas panel)
This is my latest entry to Karin's DSFDF blog. Thank you Karin for the terrific reference photo. I did not have to do any preliminary sketching for this one. I cropped and resized the photo on my monitor to the size of my canvas. Then started with the three tomatoes making sure they were placed correctly on the canvas. Then worked left to right on the painting always comparing size and position of each element.

  11. This is such a good painting! Love your strong colors and attention to detail. Favorite parts: the onion on the far right and the shadows/light around it, the loose corn leaf laying against that same onion...perfection!
