Juicy, lean-over-the-sink type sandwiches come to mind when I look at Nana’s ripe tomato pastel lesson.
Just like my brother’s sandwich! Yes, he said he really did stand at the kitchen sink to eat this one. And the sink caught the juicy drips from his freshly sliced tomato from his garden. YUM. Or, as he would say, MMMMMMM.
#2 – Fill in your richest red and add your green at the top. Blend in the color a bit with your finger tip.
#3 – Add a triangular touch of white for the light on your shiny tomato. Also use a touch of brown at the bottom for shade and to show the shadow. Maybe a touch of pink in the middle to round out your tomato.
A note on chalk pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (over 25 now!) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable.
So, was that as easy as slicing a tomato for your favorite summer sandwich?
