Tomato Jars WIP

The background went in today so I could make some value judgments...that 6th jar was a question as to the shadow line so I decided to go ahead with a background. Now I'll have trouble with a title as this reminds me of the storm cellar that my grandmother used for all her canning veggies and pickles...the shelves were old and rather beaten up looking...guess I'll have to think about this some more. Hopefully, I'll get back to the shadows and making my tweaks on the reds's evening in Texas now and I don't enjoy painting at night any colors aren't true even with good painting lights.


  1. Wow! It looks great! I like the unique angle, looking into the cupboard, and the vibrant colors. You did such a great job with this!

  2. Thank you, Katherine. There are some adjustments and values to be tweaked a bit, but I'm really liking the reds and the lids. The background reminds me of my grandmother's root cellar where she kept all her canning and crocks full of pickles.
