I love Physalis; such pleasure to open the papery lantern shaped husks, revealing a bright orange sun bursting with juice and sweetness. I like the very quick pencil sketch I made of this fruit below. A coloured image grew in my mind that would showcase the brightest orange of this fruit, however my attempt in watercolour and oil pastel was not a success. But mistakes and failures are the steps that have to be taken towards resolving an image. More work to be done here.
