daily painting | persimmon

I did a few watercolor sketches of persimmons — ended up being frustrated. I decided to do one more quick sketch (before the fruit went to rot). These winter fruits are so beautiful! The orangey-red colors, with the warm green curly leaves at the top, are so lovely and sensual. There’s something precious and fleeting about them — they come only once a year. Watercolor and pen, 10″ x 7″.
