Harsh Shadow - painting a day
"Harsh Shadow" 5x7" SOLD
These are a couple of persimmons off my tree, lit harshly because I didn't get a chance to paint until after the sun set leaving me with no natural light. I planted a persimmon tree in the backyard 4 years ago, mostly for the decorative value of the tree itself. In the fall the leaves turn deep red and orange, and then the leaves drop leaving the tree adorned with fruit. This naked state is the most interesting I think.
