Pitcher Study with Tomatoes






As reflective surfaces are so challenging for me, I was tickled to stumble across this pitcher in our local thrift shop.  (I used to get excited about buying pretty shoes.  Now, I'm all about shopping for still life props.)  And the tomatoes are from my Dad's little garden.  They taste just like summertime.  Yum!

Thank you all for your comments.  I appreciate each one of them.  And all of you.  I hope that you're all having a great week!

This is just wonderful, Darla! The pitcher has an amazing luminous glow to it, and the strokes and shading you used on it are just superb.

Keep up the great work!
