"Tension"

6"x6", oil on gesso board















How do I make an interesting painting with just two tomatoes?
What color will be good for the wall and floor?
To go analogous, or to go complementary:
that is the question: whether they are nobler in the mind to suffer......
I am no Hamlet, but I am a serious painter.
Every beginning of painting is like I am just stepping a white room to find my way into problems. I don't yet know what I am trying to solve and how I am going to solve them.
After all, I enjoyed to paint these tomatoes and making a composition. The translucent surface of tomato is quite intriguing to paint.
The title for this painting is " Tension ". I sense the tension between two tomatoes.
