October Pom

To paint this pomegranate, I set it on a box and put the box on a table so that it was nearly eye-level. I rigged a backdrop using a cigar box and a pashmina, then I tacked a black fan to the right side of the box to block all ambient light. Lastly, I turned on a nice, bright light and moved it around until I was happy with the play. The thing that I liked was the way the top was peeling down toward me, casting a shadow barely caught.
