Working all over, I lay in most of the shadows - this does take quite some time though as I have to work out which parts are lit by the sun and which parts fall into shadow. Now though, at least I can get a better idea of the painting and how it is progressing. I'll still have to deepen the tone further on most of the darker areas but for now I have a definite way forward. It still looks quite abstract at this stage but soon leaves, stems and the pomegranate will start to appear.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
