Persimmons and Chestnuts
My family ALWAYS had persimmons and chestnuts on the Thanksgiving and Christmas table ... and I know my sisters would be green with envy to have a taste of these sweet orbs.
This painting was done wet-in-wet -- 2 washes -- and I find myself overworking the washes so that as I attempt to darken the colors and values, I loose the crisp, washy look I achieved with the first wash. My goal this weekend is to figure out how to worth through this issue! I like these persimmons better in the scan than on the paper!
