Pomegranate and Tea Towel

IMG_3802 copy

It’s still wet but it think it’s finished. The tea towel was just ‘hangin’ around so I grabbed it and added it to my little cardboard still life box. I really like the lines and how they move the eye through the painting. The pomegranate would be a bit of a red bulls eye otherwise! The nice thing about alla prima is that you can have a time limit on the work. Otherwise, I have been known to spend months on a piece. Think I’ll do a few more pomegranate paintings before Christmas–not for gifts–no… ‘just because’.

Pomegranate sketch

Pomegranates are in the stores and so before I eat this delicious Christmas treat, I have to draw it. The red colour of the pomegranate is so beautiful and shape feels so good in my hand. It’s begging to be painted.   (charcoal on cartridge paper)
