Winter fruit

sketch11.26.11_persimmon P1020677 sketch11.26.11_lemonetrog The jewel tones of winter citrus and persimmons and pomegranates always make me want to break out my paints. I've been going back in my watercolor sketches with pencil to add some darks; still working that out. I actually like the photograph of the persimmon better than the scan because it shows those different textures. The etrog is something I've never seen or bought before, but the description at the grocery mentioned that it was used in a Jewish holiday and could perfume a room for weeks...very intriguing. It smells like citrus meets rose.

Pretty! And I did not know about the etrog--sounds lovely!

Wonderful! I'll have to search for that etrog!
