Double Tomato Study

6" x 6", Oil on gessoed Crescent Board

This week I started a small still life of a single tomato on a white dish towel---simple and straight I thought---I wiped it off twice.  I'm still working on the third attempt but decided to set it aside today because it was too wet. So I got another tomato and did these quick studies to play and have fun and remember why I wanted to paint that stinking tomato in the first place.  I toned the surface on the left side with burnt sienna and on the right with green. I like doing these studies, I often do them as a warm up exercise. I'm hoping now I'll return to my other tomato with fresh eyes.
