A Jungle of Tomatoes

25" x 17½"

Last year I came up with A Neighborhood of Zucchini so this year it's back to the garden with a Jungle of Tomatoes, and I couldn't even keep it contained within the original space I had started with!  And that's also what made me take more time in completing it, I'm afraid.  The leaves aren't quite right for tomatoes, but the jungle aspect certainly comes through!  What doesn't show as much are the bits of highlight I put on the tomatoes.

Later is better than never!  Your comments are always welcome.

Your composition is spot-on, but the use of a variety of greens would add depth and visual interest to your quilt.

Very fun! The tomatoes seem to be bursting out of their quilt! Love the high-contrast red and green and the graphicness of the image.

Tobi, I agree with Ann, and it's not too late to add some darker greens, and some highlights. Wish my tomato plants were that prolific.
