Gem of a Fruit

7" X 10"
Arches HP 140lb WC paper 

         Done from the PADT blog challenge photo..

I love pomegranates, and so when this challenge photo came along, I could not resist painting it. Enthusiasm has helped me finish it smoothly. Hope you like it, or if you could give me any constructive critique, it will be much appreciated. Thank you.


  1. Extraordinaire... j'admire ce merveilleux travail. Une grenade c'est magnifique... et la vôtre particulièrement avec la précision de ses graines... Bravo.
    Enfant je croyais que ce fruit était réservé aux peintres et ne se consommait pas! Naïve j'étais, n'est-ce pas?!

  2. Looks wonderful to me, watercolour is such an unforgiving medium if you get it wrong there is not much chance of rectifing it, not like oils or acrylics, so I think you need more skill to paint with it. The lovely dark background makes the fruit really shine out, very well done!

  3. This is wonderful. the tiny arils and the pealed skin of the pomegranate have been rendered with lot of detail.

  4. Millie , i love the depth of colour you achieve with your watercolour paintings Beautiful!
    Best wishes Syls.
