The Open Pomegranate – Karen Winters Daily Painting

October 31st, 2007

The Open Pomegranate – 5 x 7 inches – oil on canvasboard

Yes, I know it is a little radical compared to yesterday’s more sedate persimmon and plumbago composition, but sometimes a girl’s just got to cut loose and do something different. I had purchased a few pomegranates to put in a still life arrangement and then I got the idea to break it open and see how I could convey the feeling of that juicy flesh and seeds scattering in all directions.

This was a great deal of fun to paint, as you can probably tell from the enthusiastic brush strokes. And I can’t really say what tomorrow will bring …

  1. That’s as difficult task to paint a pomegranite with thick paint. It lends itself more easily to a linocut I think with its strong seed shapes, etc.

  2. It may be difficult but it was a lot of fun to do! I actually think the thick paint conveys some of the juiciness of the fruit.
