Fall is my favorite season for its bounty is everywhere. This pair of Pomegranates were so much fun to paint. I just love this contemporary composition. The fruits completed with a series of transparent washes and the branch using my dry brush technique.
I left out a few small branches to reduce overlap and allowing this pair to take center stage. All the other pomegranates in my studio are singles and dried with their rich yellows, reds and oranges. This pair turned a leathery brown in color and texture.
It will be on exhibit this February, just awaiting word from The Virginia Watercolor Society to learn if this piece made the cut!
Happy Painting, Linda
