Remembering the basics

Heirloom tomatoes just begging to be painted. The reflections were just as important to me as the tomatoes, and I wanted to explore the composition on the page. It was a chance to go back to the basics of design, composition, colors, values, only this time I didn’t have to spend an entire semester, as in 1972 at Tyler School of Art, learning to render eggs and other white shapes with black and white poster paint (aka foundation-year painting).
