Tomato Study

I scrimp on paint. I try not to, but I squeeze out too little pigment and "save" the paint.....Today, I decided to only apply paint that was very thickly loaded on my brush. This was a very different experience. It felt a lot more sculptural and "rich" to paint this way. As soon as I complete this post, I will try another.

This little painting is also part of my self-learning about canvas. My husband cut pieces of masonite to which, using different neutral ph adhesives, I have attached a variety of primed canvas types.

After posting, I decided to change the brushwork on the front of the tomato and change the direction and size of the brush marks on the background.
