Pomegranate Parts

8x5.5 mixed media (watercolor, colored pencils, watercolor colored pencils, and Derwent Inktense) on Strathmore Visual Journal done today from a partly opened pomegranate.  I did not sketch the other half but chose to include several of its seeds spilling out.  A warm yellow watercolor wash on white paper began the work then red CPs used to do outline.  Several colors were layered and its red complement, green, was put in throughout and over the bottom left shadow.  This was a homework assignment for the Bootkamp course in Sketchbook Skool.  If participants have completed 3 semesters of SBS, they are invited to do Bootkamp, a free compilation of previous lessons but different exercises.
