oooh lovely tomatoes

5X7" (18X13cm) "ooooh lovely tomatoes" on grey colourfix with coloured pencil

This isnt the best pic but here are my tomatoes :) I struggled a bit with them actually i think i am changing my style or my seeing or something as i seem to be fighting with alot of my pieces. I decided when i got to just about done that they werent red enough so i erased (gotta love that electric eraser!!!) and started again ... but i had used solvent on some parts of the paper and while it all erased back to virtually nothing .. it just wouldnt take the same amount of abuse.
I think also it was the colourfix that did it. on the stonehenge i think it would have held....i am really hankering to try out the pastelboard that many other CP artists are using right now .. but i have a bit of a stock supply in the cupboard i am forcing myself to stick with this for a little bit now :)

Anywho .. note to self - when working with whites and bright colours on dark papers remember to underpaint the bright areas as well as the shadows!!!! this was my mistake.

Oooohhh Belinda... these tomatoes are really beautiful! You did a perfect job with them, bravo!
They look so life-like and still have a very painterly feeling to it...
I have some sheets of colourfix ready to use but somehow didn't get around to really start something... definitely have to try it....
