Tomato Trio

I removed one of the tomatoes from this group (following the rule of threes) and ate it, and to my surprise it was a flavorful delicious ripe tomato. I ate it with green evoo and salt on heavy sourdough bread. (Three ingredients together.) Also, my color scheme numbers three and the amounts occur in this ratio: White (lots), red (some), green (a bit). Another composition rule I kept in mind but didn't manage to achieve, is to have varying distances between all objects and between objects and the canvas edge. I am not a lover of rules, but this was a valuable exercise.
Also, I worked some ultramarine into the lightest area of the shadows and it worked!


  1. Nicely done, Jean! I like your accompanying explanation of your process.

  2. Bravo votre trio est parfaitement réussi...
    Je ne peux m'empêcher d'avoir les senteurs qui viennent en regardant des tomates!
