The last of the persimmons

These are the last of the 2020 season’s persimmon sketches.

When you draw something over and over, it’s easy to get overly familiar with it. So I sat these persimmon on my table, a fuyu and a hachiya, and looked at them carefully, turning and twisting them around, really trying to capture the feel of their surfaces, shape and color on paper. Not in a photo-realistic way, but in a way in which the lines and application of color can speak to how they looked, smelt and felt to me.

Here is a second piece, a colorful wicker basket full of persimmon.

Now that the season is done, persimmon sketches will only be back- but only in the fall of 2021.
