Stone Cold Potato, Two Sisters, and Odd Tomato Out

I'm in the throes of teaching my spring semester acrylic painting class at Sacramento City College. Some color mixing assignments have been followed by some "simple" potato and tomato painting exercises on 8"X10" canvas. Here is my potato and tomato efforts. I hope to post a few of my student's efforts next week. Mashed potatoes rock and Campbell's Tomato Soup bring back yards of good memories!

Hi David,

I don't think I've ever seen such a jolly stone cold potato, and your tomatoes do rock!! Campbell's tomato
soup. Yep. That was lunch with home made bread when I was a school kid.

Love the work.

Take care,

Barbara

Thanks Barbara but I don't think my reds are as brighjt as yours.

Hi David,

I think they are, but you're using
more subtle background colours.
I haven't learned how to do that yet.

Take care,

Barbara

And I, Barbara, have not learned how to jump in and use more jazzy background colors!
