Gorgeous gifted Autumn fruit leads to luscious still life!
Mother Nature you surprising, wonderful thing!
Who could have know when our permaculture garden designer – and bold art calendar stockist – Nadja from Nadja’s Garden came around bearing a large pomegranate, that a colour still life was hiding inside? I didn’t!
I cut through the firm skin and beheld such rich colour I was drawn to begin a painting featuring the wonder! Here are some stages of the drawing process:
It’s not easy to hold the phone in my left hand and hover my right – without messing up the drawing!
Here’s a pic from somewhere in between those two ^^ of the drawing stage, including my salubrious equipment! The tablecloth is an inherited seer sucker (Note: not “See ya, sucker!” Haha!) cotton, and the blue flower and ikea circle cloth behind was pinned up before we had curtains with actual curtain rods to keep out that late Summer heat.
Here’s a little section of the artwork, finished. Click through to see completed and in entirety in my gallery shop. Or even make it your own if it’s calling to you!
What’s your feeling when you look at this?
I’d love to hear on Facebook or below in the comments.
