This tomato would not stand up, but I liked the strongly lit stem hovering over the shadow so I painted it the way it landed. The translucent red of a backlit tomato is a beautiful thing.
In other news, tomorrow I'll head off for Sedona with my friend, Martha. We're taking a five day plein air workshop with Jennifer McChristian. I'm very excited about more plein air instruction and in such a beautiful setting. I'll post when I can and let you know how it's going!
