Thought I’d be done with the persimmon after this post and this one? Not a chance! I have a big tray full of persimmon ripening, so I sketched them all. When I layer on stuff, often those first layers are almost completely hidden by the end. But I know they’re there underneath everything else I piled on and that makes me happy.
Here is that piece in three stages. A pretty tame-looking start, looking at contours, getting a feel for the roundness of those persimmons.
Then came lots of stuff: Ink, pencil, pen, crayons and acrylic markers were in the mix.
And here is where it landed.
I had a blast working on this. Can you tell?
