This plastic tomato box threw out great shadows and highlights to capture in charcoal. And the spiny tomato stalks are always fun to draw. This is on Canson Edition paper and I love how the smoothed charcoal looks. Last weeks Coke Glass was the first time I have used this paper and I was enchanted by the soft textures it produced. I have saved half of this sheet to test with color pencil, so this drawing is smaller than those of the past few weeks.
Description : All the tomatoes are gone, just the stalks are left in the empty plastic box.
This pastel and charcoal still life drawing is part of the “Carbon Footprints” series.
