Today's painting, inspired by Jonathan Aller's wonderful step-by-step demonstrations, was my first 'plein air' painting using one of my own grown heirloom tomatoes (freshly picked this morning). This was an awesome exercise in both trying to recreate colours without using my gimp program and finishing a painting in one setting. I definitely see more of this type of painting in my future... in fact, I've already ordered another bath of 5x7 gessoboards. Lots of fun!!
