Believe it or not, even though tomatoes are botanically defined as fruit they are considered and excepted as part of the vegetable family. Vine tomatoes are very good for us. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and contain zero fats.
From the standpoint of someone who loves colors, tomatoes come in a rainbow of colors, not just red. They also come in shades of green, brilliant yellows, orange, purple, burgundy, and pink.
A few years ago, I planted a lovely garden in Edmonton, which garnered a few tomatoes, some of the most red, most delicious tomatoes I had ever seen. The “red” of these tomatoes were so intense, I honestly doubted I could reproduce the colors in paints I mixed to paint a picture.
Garden Fresh Vine Tomatoes
In any case “Garden Fresh Vine Tomatoes Painting Joan Artist Brown” is the result of my lovely garden and the tomatoes it gave me. I decided to paint them situated on a marble table because they both represent quality to me and it was a great opportunity for me to practice painting in the “Still Life” genre.

Watercolor Print Fruit Bowl Still – Rod Webb Manner by Artist Joan A Brown
The story behind this little number is, I wanted to try my hand at a watercolor painting and decided to try this one after visiting Rod Webb’s website. I was quite happy with the results considering the medium of watercolor is not my forte. So impressed I was that I contacted Rod and showed him the painting. The following is what he wrote back:
Thanks for sending your painting. Its excellent, great tonal range
of values, good colour mixing. Love the shine on your apple. Would
love to think it was my lesson that helped achieve the result but I
can see you are a natural for the medium. Frame it and hang it with
Above all to thine own self be true”
I ended up giving the original to a close friend who thanked me by giving me two Giclee prints of the original work, one of which I gave as a gift to friends in Europe, the other I’m listing here. This Limited Edition print of the original work was digitally transferred on to an 18 x 24 inch watercolor paper.
There is a slight tear, about ½ an inch in the upper left-hand part of the print (see image above-right). Tear does not show if print is matted and framed. The print has been thoroughly inspected by myself before signing to make sure it is true to my original vision. Watercolor Print Fruit Bowl Still – Rod Webb Manner by Artist Joan A Brown Giclee reproduction is the second in a limited edition to only two. Your print is signed and numbered on the lower-right front directly below the original signature.
THIS ONE IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE…Let me know and I will send you all the specs.
