watercolor on paper
20 cm x 20 cm
A ripe pomegranate with its deep red, round shape is the inspiration for this painting. I added the pears for contrast. A quick sketch while I still had the fruit in front of me with the idea of painting it at a later time. I redrew it to proceed with my painting. I then stopped, feeling stuck, the painting format looked too plain.
My work in progress ... I replaced the pomegranate with an apple, the former needed to be eaten.
Pattern, colors, details everywhere!! Incredible history, very glad to see many frescoes restored since my last visit...over 20 years ago!!
yet more patterns and incredible works of art..."The School of Athens" takes my breath away every time!! Photography is strictly prohibited inside the Sistine Chapel, I think if I would have a favorite work of art, it would be one of the many in here.
So, humbly back to my painting... a little bit of pattern on the bottom might be what it needed.
Thanks for stopping by!
