6"x6" Oil on board

Persimmons are in season again... I love the delicate flavour of this fruit and the lovely colour. I toned this board orange so I could leave small bits peeking through. This one nearly got thrown in the bin! I find the colour orange quite difficult, but I stuck it out and was reasonably happy with it in the end. I used a limited palette of cad red, cad yellow light, ultra blue and white.


  1. Love the vibrant color and thanks so much for sharing your palette with us! It is a beautiful piece!

  2. Thanks Maria, I like trying different palettes and this one is nice and simple!
