"Farmers' Market Find" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

"Farmers Market Find" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas
I picked up these orange cherry tomatoes at the Farmers' Market.  I had no intention of buying tomatoes but these little guys looked so beautiful I couldn't resist and immediately wanted to paint them. 

The tomatoes in the back were more ripe and their color was a rich, saturated orange which I created by mixing various amounts of reds and yellows.  The foreground tomatoes were still somewhat green so I added a bit of blue into the orange to "gray them down." 

This is just a happy little painting that reminds me of summer.

"Farmers' Market Find" is a 6 x 6 inch oil on canvas painting and is available at Artists Corner and Gallery in West Acton, MA.  It comes in a black floater frame.  See additional photos below.
