Jar with Tomatoes

Oil on canvas panel. 8 x 10" 


Did this today.  Took about a hour and a half.  I've been wanting to paint these jars for a long time now. So I went out and bought a couple of them. One big , one small. They are used mainly for storing pickles , here in south India. They make excellent compositional elements.

The jar is yellow ochre with a bit of Cobalt Blue. For the background I mixed Cobalt Blue/Paynes Gray/a touch of crimson, and a dash of Yellow Ochre. Tomatoes are pure Vermillon, with Cobalt Blue added for shadows, along with a touch of the background color to harmonize it with the background.
