TOMATO WATERCOLOR CARDS

Let’s try something new today, shall we? These watercolor tomato cards would be perfect to include in any “garden extras” baskets, for when you are up to your eyeballs in tomatoes, and need to feed them to friends instead. Plus, tomatoes come in all shapes, colors, and sizes, so you would have to actually put effort into messing it up.

We’ll need the basic watercoloring supplies. Some water, paints, brushes, and paper.

I cut out a little square of paper, and drew a light outline with a pencil of a tomato. Its basically a potato shape with a spider hat.

Now to color. To make mine, I wet the paper first, then add some color little by little, until I like it. Don’t think about it too much. Go with your gut. I filled it in, then went back and added a little more red-orange on the edge for shading.

Wait for a hot minute for it to dry. Then paint the spider shape green, and you got yourself a tomato.

After I finished the red tomato, I did a green rendition, and also a tribute to my garden favorite, the pear tomato.

After its all dry, adhere it to the front of a card, and give it away to a friend or enemy, depending on how much you like your painting.
