Pomegranates for Halloween Eve
These first two drawings are from my journal from that summer, and I can feel the sun and hear the bees and the lapping of the water against the little beaches and smell a sweet undetermined floral smell when I look at these rough sketches.
I like the sketches because they show the structure of the flowers and explain the structure of the fruit.
In the drawing at the top left you can see the swollen base of the flower, which is the multiple ovary container and turns into the vaguely six-sided fruit that's filled with all those seeds in their glossy gel.
Tomorrow: inside the pomegranate for Halloween!
