Drawing Michele’s French vegies in colour pencil and mixed media

I have never seen so many different types of tomatoes in one place – thanks to my sister’s love of markets.

I was trying to catch them here, but I obviously took too long, as my arrangement kept disappearing and being eaten!

I used watercolours and colour pencil. When I travel I take a small plastic container of Winsor & Newton paints with me, but in my rush I only packed one brush (which I was soon to regret ..). I only had a handful of pencils to use so my colour palette is pretty limited – but I always have a purple, my favourite colour for shadows. I avoid black like the plague.
