Persimmons




20x20cms Oil on wood
Persimmons, kaki or cachi as they are known around here.  These are from my friend's garden, painted on a textured surface. The challenge to myself was to paint the smooth skin of the fruit on the rough gessoed board.

Cipolle, Onions, Oignons.....

When I get stuck for something to paint I have a look around my kitchen.  Fruit and veg are always a good standby and onions are actually very beautiful if you look closely.  I set them up by the window with lots of natural light and watch them glow.

Every year at this time the dusty lane becomes  lined with beautiful poppies, swaying and bobbing in the breeze. Each day I drive past and want to stop to admire the evidence of spring on the roadside.

The reds vary from orangy red (technical term here) to a deep scarlet, brightening the dullest morning!
