Today's painting is a tonal sketch of my garden pomegranates. My goal was to focus only on shapes and values to capture their simple beauty. For my painter friends, I painted an overall tone on the whole canvas, then used both a reductive and an additive approach to establish the forms (wiping away and painting back in). My paint was a combination of ultramarine blue and burnt sienna mixed to a dark neutral.

Amazing how the colour gives it a Renaissance feeling.
