Portrait artist paints a pomegranate

Kiss / 5×5 inches / oil on gessoed hardboard / January Painting Marathon #10 / available at http://jessiesfineart.com

This is a pomegranate and a tangerine sitting on the windowsill. I liked how the light was coming between them except that small spot where they’re touching. I’ve been really struggling… I  wiped several paintings yesterday before I finished this one. I feel like my understanding of paint got a little more sophisticated and I’m working hard to get my skills catch up.

By this time next month we should be in our new house! I’m excited about the studio space. I’ve already got a roll of canvas and have some large landscape paintings planned. I can’t wait.
