‘Tomatoes’ by Mij Rothera



Pencil, coloured pencil, oil pastel and ink on paper.42 x 30 cm

Work produced after a Monday Mindful Still Life with Susannah Pal.

I chose to draw a tomato in a Monday Mindful Still Life session. I loved observing the wiggly vines and the colours. Afterwards, I returned to tomatoes and was completely engrossed for a couple of hours. The Mindful Still Life sessions are so relaxing and fun. It’s great to see what everyone else makes too. Susannah’s approach is playful, inspiring and unintimidating, and helps me to focus on tiny details.
