This is another favorite fruit of mine...these grow in my garden! Not easy to paint, but I had to try!! This is number 10 of my paintings done for my 2017 food calendar, when they are done and because spring is coming up I think I'll be doing flowers!
I managed to paint a couple of Persimmons before the season ended....I love this fruit so usually they
get eaten before I think about painting them! Orange is another hard color I find difficult to paint, mainly because of the darks! It came down to mixing red, yellow and blue with a touch of burnt sienna.
The last one in this thread series! I have had this very big button for a long time and have painted it before...actually I bought it to paint!! Painting the buttons in this series has been good practice for ellipses, still not sure if I have got it right though!!
I found this bright lime green cotton and one button so this is painted with the same palette (minus the black) as the previous one.The button is a cloth one and was nowhere as hard to paint as the last ones!! There will be another couple for this series, I couldn't help myself! I enjoy finding ways of setting up and it's a way of making use of these sewing tools now that I don't use them like I used to.
