Four Tomatoes

Four Tomatoes;  Jan 31:18 Hahnemuhle ( 30 sketches in the Hahnemuhle)Hahnemuhle Watercolour Book, Daniel Smith watercolours

I dated this sketch incorrectly … Today is February 1st not the 2nd.

These were some really ripe tomatoes about to go into sauce so I decided to sketch and paint them first.

I took a risk and applied masking fluid on the branches and leaves and the paper handled it beautifully. It actually felt quite liberating to use the frisket instead of struggling to paint around such tiny tendrils.
