This is a beautiful big pomegranate I bought at the store yesterday. I played around with it in different set ups, and nothing was making me happy. You can see all my rejected "brick a brack" on my desk in the photo below, (should have cleaned that up before picture taking, but, oh well...) At last, I thought of using some white tissues to bring a nice contrast in value, and I loved it. So, simple, but so interesting! It was fun to paint all those pretty folds and shadows. I loved all the many different colors in the fruit too.
Just for fun, here is an image of what it might look like framed. (The painting is sold unframed)
