Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)

Watercolour 2008

Originating in South America, the tomato, which belongs to the nightshade family, was spread around the world following the Spanish colonisation of the Americas, and its many varieties are now widely grown. It took some time using a dry brush technique to build up layers of colour sufficient to give the impression of depth and juiciness in this fruit.
