|Solanum Lycopersicum - 6 x 6 Oil on Gessobord
I decided on this subject matter for a few reasons. I had a package of these multi-colored cherry tomatoes, and wanted to include them in a painting, especially the green/red variety -- just love their colors. And the other reason was that I decided to do the "Crumpled Challenge" on DPW. I know the crumpling is minimal, but it is in there! I may give the challenge another try before the month is out. Crumpled fabric is an especially great thing to know how to paint for clothed figure painting.
Interesting trivia: while I knew the tomato was technically a fruit and not a vegetable, I just found out (from Wikipedia) that it is actually classified as a berry!
