Summer Bounty (Cherry tomatoes in Sake Cup)

Summer Bounty ( Cherry Tomatoes in Japanese Sake Cup)
7" x 7" Watercolor on paper
It's been a busy and pleasurable Summer for us in Geneva with lots of activities with our daughter. It is also a pleasure to get a window of opportunity to paint in between these activities.
I have 3 tomato plants (cherry, regular and yellow) in planters on my terrace and they are doing very well, with lots of tomatoes ripening in the sun. They taste delicious and they are perfect "models" for my Summer paintings... I hope you like my first painting from a series of tomato paintings I would like to do this summer.

Hi Theresa,

These cherries are indeed beautiful! I think what sets this painting apart from other artist's work is the skill with which you have incorporated the tones of the cast shadows into the tomatoes and the sake cup. It really unifies the entire focal point. And then there is the background - just so beautiful! I look forward to enjoying the rest of your summer series. Glad to hear you are having a wonderful time with your daughter as well as painting!
