Bowl of Tomatoes, Still-Life, 12"x9"

I took a break from miniatures yesterday. They are small but they take sooo much forethought that they can be a real chore. Instead I pulled out an art board an the acrylic and jumped into painting this still life. What I like about acrylic is that you don't have to be perfect from the beginning, like you do with watercolors, you just slap it on and if you don't like it, don't worry, it will be dry in minutes and you can cover it up! Makes for a much looser and more intuitive painting process. This one took 5 or 6 hours.

There are some things I need to touch up and then I'm calling it done.
