I set up this small still life in my studio and painted "Sliced Tomato" in the style of alla prima (all at once). I love capturing the beauty in everyday objects like these tomatoes. Everyday objects painted from life is the essence of the "Painting a Day" art movement that is gaining momentum in the art collecting market. I never tire painting this way... it really hons the eye and teaches me the value of SEEING vs LOOKING!
