Teacup Tomatoes


These little cherry tomatoes were fun to paint!  The tablecloth isn't quite this blue, but overall, I'm happy with the image.  At least, the glare is down to a minimum.  I'm still photographing my paintings outside, but I'm thinking of purchasing a light cube to simply things.  If anyone has experience with them or any suggestions, please let me know.  Thanks!

Hi Darla, Lighting as been a big issue for me. I did purchase a light cube and it saved me from going outside so I do recommend it. I got mine off of ebay and its called Square Perfect. I think it will hold up to a 12 x 16 and maybe a 16 x 20. Let me know if you want more info on it. I love your cherry tomatoes and great job on the mug. You captured the texture of the mug nicely.

Oh, Debbie...thank you so much! I've been looking at them on ebay, but I didn't know which was best. I really appreciate your recommendation! And thank you for your comments on the painting, too. :)
