So this is a small 4 x4 study of pomegranates. I had to discard the 8 x 8 unacceptable first attempts and decided to scale back until I could get the painting to stop looking like dysmorphic apple/tomatoes.
Here are the characteristics of pomegranates that I have decided that I need to paint: multiple planes, squared sides, leathery skin that still makes a strong seer of highlights where the planes change. a fabulous, rich set of deep red-maroon colors,
This is improving and is my day 11 contribution. See you tomorrow!!
