Pomegranates


Our grocers have FINALLY gotten these in!! HORRAY!! I picked up two -- to sketch and to eat! I had sketched the full fruits and had taken them down to the kitchen to slice open so I could add that to the sketch -- and thought I'd snap a photo in case I ran out of time (so common lately!) . Unfortunately, I dropped my camera on its lens -- jamming it so it couldn't be fixed. So off we went to purchase a new one -- SIGH!

The poms -- DELICIOUS -- were certainly an expensive investment I wasn't expecting!

WOWEE, that is a gorgeous red Lin!!! And exactly the right red. I saw some yesterday at the store and almost bought some too. This painting is just a beauty.

These are pretty! All those seeds!

Sorry about your camera....

Oh my goodness you have captured them perfectly. We just "shared" one at my last impressionist painting lesson. We never thought of painting it. LOL
Your highlights and colors are incredible.
So sorry about the camera. Us too! SIGH

Love the reds in this one, Lin!

Wow, the highlights and use of colour are fab but the 'heads' if that is the right word, they are so realistic perhaps you didn't need the camera after all!! Seriously, sorry to hear about the camera, I'd be lost without mine. Hope you treat yourself to something nice!

Beautiful poms! Too bad they were so costly. I love the way you painted the seeds--they look so juicy!
