Friday Paintings...

I did two paintings Friday after running errands all day! I was so proud of myself for not just wasting the day since I did not get to paint at the start of the day like I normally do. I love this one of the tomatoes! The blue reflection is more understated in the actual painting, but I can't get it to show up like that on the photo. This is 11x14.
This one I had trouble with the yellow underpainting making my purple so dull. I will probably go back to my old system of dry underpaintings. Who knows. this is an 8x10.

Lorrie, I love the tomatoes. The colors really zing. The banana looks rather lonely. Oaula
