Tomatoes


I was playing around with watercolor pencils. I don't use them very often, and I don't really handle them well. These tomatoes look more like oranges!

This was done in a page in my sketchbook on Aquarius II, which seems too soft for pencil. The pencil actually dents the paper.

It was fun sitting on the porch in the late afternoon, late September, sun playing with color.

I did a few chores in the yard today. I am slowly putting the garden to bed for the winter. Slowly. I don't want to rush into anything, but I guess now that it is officially autumn, I have no excuse. I have to come to grips with it - nothing is going to bloom again this year.

Thanks, Ellie, for the tomatoes!

Thanks for the hint with pencils on the Aquarius II.
I am enjoying my newly-put- together sketchbook.
