Tomatoes, Knife

6" square, oil on canvas panel

Raining here today and gray, so the color doesn't photograph well. But it's good enough for now.
I wanted to do the tomatoes before they lose that green, also to work with shadowed yellow. In Carol Marine's workshop (fabulous!) I came up against the world of grays that make up almost everything. I hadn't thought of it in that way before, that color is shifting constantly within the gray range and only rarely is there any pure color. And yellow, surely the most transparent, is full of all sorts of reflected things in the shadows.
