Please feel free to make this painting your own by using your local newspaper or your favorite comics . Just be sure that the colors in the focus of interest are repeated in the comics. And, ( big and) that the shapes in the comics vary in size. Please make a black and white copy of this photo for your value map. Have all your paints handy along with round and flat brushes. Mask the light struck side of the tomato stems. And the small white shapes (look at your black and white) in the blue base .
