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.
