Trois Tomates

Tuesday, April 24, 2007 at 6:59 PM

Two of my favorite online artists: Casey and Ronelle (who live near each other in France) get together to paint weekly. Last week they gave themselves and others a weekly challenge to do a painting larger than a small sketch. I got excited to join them but unfortunately work got in the way and I wasn't able to get my fruit painting done by Monday's deadline. Here I am a day late and not really excited about this 10x14 watercolor on 140#arches cold press block. oh yeah, tomatoes are a fruit and my favorite!


  1. These are gorgeous; Marta. I love the transparency of the wash and the delicate way you've handled the stem.

  2. Oh I agree Marta...a delicious painting, both in theme and in technique!Love the plate/bowl and that lovely background color. Everything works together so well in a beautiful painting..(And don't stress about the "deadline", there isn't reaaly such a thing (only a bit of "pushing on to do it) the same with the "theme"...the idea is to finish a painting, something other than a sketch. But if you like, roughly the theme for this week is "A still life with bottle/s, or something with water(the sea, river, waterfall, bathttub, fountain, filled pitcher...)
    great work!

    Oh Marta - These are just beautiful. You did a really lovely job with all of it. And I'm glad to hear you did eat them in the end because they look delicious!
