Study in Red 1 and 2 - Two Works in Progress

Earlier today I went grocery shopping and after putting away the produce I noticed that the basket on the counter that I put the fresh fruit into had a red and white gingham cloth in the bottom and most of the fruit were in it were in various shades of red.

Study in Red I

The sunlit was coming in the kitchen window so I moved the basket onto the kitchen table and added a couple of tomatoes to the arrangement and started to draw the still life.

After doing the sketch for the first one I changed the angle of the painting as the natural light coming through the window had changed and I did a second sketch.

Study in Red II

 I will post each of these still life paintings as I start to add colour into the sketches.
