Up until yesterday I haven’t painted tomotoes before and they are suprisingly satisfying to paint! I also havent really used red and it’s a fun colour to work with, so rich and strong.

I mixed lots of warm red colours from yellow to burnt orange and deep crimson, I thought I may have put too many into the painting but when I finished the tomotoes off with there stalks and highlights they came together 🙂

The turquiose blue (blue-green) is the complementary of red-orange, which makes the colours zing together.
