Slowly working the initial
color washes on the tomatoes
and around the box that holds them.
The box has straw inside it and that may the part that causes me the most problems. I may just drybrush that part in around the tomatoes where now you see just white space.
Now time to begin deepening the values using the same colors - very limited palette of Hansa Yellow Medium, Perinone Orange, Pyrrol Red and Perylene Green. Using a touch of Lunar Earth on the wooden part of the box to get a grainy look. Cross your fingers and wish me lots of patience :)
