When I first started doing small, produce paintings, this was the sort of thing I did pretty exclusively. I'm not sure what it is about simple, backlit objects and long shadows that do it for me, but they do. What's tough about tomatoes is they're fairly translucent and so the values within them are only subtly different from each other. That said, reds don't photograph well and so I think there is a little bit more variation in the painting than you see here.
