Pomegranate Sketch

Yesterday, we sketched at Monticello Antiques. When it's cold and raining, we move indoors to draw something we've brought or an interesting antique from the showroom floor. I brought the large pomegranates and Martha came with the small ones from her family's Texan garden. With good friends, conversation and a cup of java, who could ask for anything more.

Beautiful sketch! Love to eat pomegranates and would like to be able to sketch at least one that still sits here!!!

I love this sketch, and the colors and shading are perfect! This is one of your best yet! What reds did you use? Inquiring minds want to know...

Thanks for all of your comments. Gwen, I used mostly M. Graham watercolors- alizarin crimson and quinacridone rose mixed with payne's gray for shadows.
