May try it on acrylic or oil canvas next time. It was too difficult to get what I wanted.
Size 4 x 6 inches using Liquitex acrylics.

This is ATC size on 140# watercolor paper.
Took the paint directly off the sticks and mixed several colors in a little palette. Didn't have any burnt sienna, so improvised with what I had. The are very strong colors.

This was a bit of a challenge with the oils. It's hard enough with watercolors. Next try will be acrylics.

I did one similar to this ATC size using watercolor pencils. The background was a bit different. This one was quite a challenge. I normally don't care to do still life's, but it was an assignment.

To the left is some more of our containers plants. The 2 left containers have tomatoes in them along with a hanging tomato plant above them.
To the right are 2 more containers of tomatoes. These are in Earthboxes. We've had these boxes for over 5 years and replant them each year.
On the left is our part of our container garden with a canopy over the top to block some of the hot sun rays here in northern Florida. In these boxes are beets, green beans, corn and red and yellow peppers in the white flower box. The 3 green boxes are Good Earth boxes, our first year in these boxes. The one terra cotta box with corn is a flower box. It has ears of corn on it already.
