Funny tomatoes

My local grocery store was selling heirloom tomatoes (imported from somewhere warm) and I had to buy them — to sketch and then eat of course. I’ve been watching Marc Taro Holmes travel sketching course on Craftsy and, inspired by his 5 à 7 exercise and brush pen suggestions, I decided to try his approach for this quick sketch. I like the looser line.


Lessons learned: let brush pen dry thoroughly before adding wash (it can bleed a bit); mix up plenty of paint for the shadows so there is a consistent one.
