Persimmon and Other Things

Another mixed bag. I wanted to paint the Persimmon, but I felt frustrated with the watercolour medium. It would be so easy to get what I wanted using oil, but I'm stubborn when I decide I want to learn some new technique so I kept plodding along.

The following small sketches on the sample paper were made on the same day as a kind of relief after the failure with the Persimmon. The limes in the bowl reminded me of eggs in a nest. I'm quite pleased with the pencil Eraser.

  1. I love how the pencil came out (the others too, but the pencil really stood out to me). I hope you keep experimenting with watercolor--looks like you'll create some wonderful work in this medium.
