One of the 38 paintings in my show at Gallery by the Bay this month is "Los Tres Amigos (Tomatillos)"
8x10" Original Watercolor Framed : 11x14"

I started out with a contour drawing from the set up in my studio of two tomatillos and a husk. I painted the warm and cool lights and darks, capturing the light and cast shadows.
For the background, I used a darker value to highlight the tops of the tomatillos. I used Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper, which creates some very nice textural drizzles wet on wet.
