Italian meat grinder still life painting by Fergus A Ryan

Italian Tomato Press

On days too hot to paint en plein air in Italy I painted this wonderful old tomato squeezer machine at the studio. It's upside down, of course, but I loved both the shapes of its various parts and the negative spaces around them. I'm sure I'll paint this again.
