Ruby Orbs

It's pomegranate season! Well, truth is, we are at the end of the season now, but my garden has done it's job producing these delightful fruits for my visual pleasure. I can't bring myself to eat them or even break them open, I just love them too much. I did cut some branches and bring them inside to paint. This is the first of a few studies I did in preparation for some larger pieces.

Such rich, velvety colors. Yummy. Can't believe you grow these beauties!!! Have fun painting them - this one is delightful. XOXO

Wonderful job on these, Laurel. You really captured the rich, subtle colors in the fruit. Great job on those leaves, too. I love the variations in greens, from deep shadows to bright highlights.
