Women who Art - Student Spotlight

Virginia Hudgins
Virginia has a an innate sense of color and a delightful painting style. Her latest painting of five plump tomatoes has the warm kiss of summer sunlight and the earthy feel of fruit fresh from the garden. ...

Using a picture of heirloom tomatoes as a guide, Virginia
paints in warm tones of orange and yellow.

And adds a cool blue background to enhance and deepen color
in both the tomatoes and the bowl.

To anchor the still life, Virginia adds shadows of complimentary colors.

Painted highlights add a glow and make the tomatoes
seem ready to burst off the canvas.

Virginia and her heirloom painting.
Absolutely luscious.
