Solanum Lycopersicum

Solanum Lycopersicum - 6 x 6 Oil on Gessobord
Bid on this painting
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!
