Doodlewash Prompt: Tomatoes. Did you know the scientific name for tomato is Lycopersicon lycopersicum, which means wolf peach?
Gloaming is a word (more or less obsolete) for twilight or dusk. I’ve always loved it but it isn’t a word you often use.
This picture was an experiment. It was another painting that I washed away under the tap. The colors were too staining though and remained pretty bright. I decided to draw and then color my tomatoes with colored pencil. I looked at the result and immediately thought ‘it’s tomatoes seen in the gloaming after a rain’.
I still don’t really like the piece, but it’s more interesting than it was before and, at least I got to use the word gloaming, lol.
