Art Post: Bad Boys

In theory I’ve been laying the groundwork for a portrait of Persephone taking pomegranate seeds from her lover’s fingers, in practice it took me a while to warm up yesterday, and then I carried on my relentless hatred of drawing in black for a bit, and ended the day with a few hours of plugging away at a hyper close-up digital painting of two pomegranate seeds in their casing. You’d think that wouldn’t take too long, but the more closely you look at natural objects the more depth and variation of colour you find and the more effort you have to put into replicating it. There have been some amazing pinks and browns inside that pomegranate.
