This is a quick sketch of a persimmon I was using for a still life.  It got so ripe while I was painting it I thought for sure it would be good.  But no—one bite was all I could stand—turned my mouth inside out.  I like everybody’s ink drawings so much I want to do more.

  1. Well, unlike a lot of fruit, persimmons are always quite bitter until they are fully ripened on the branch. In North America, the native ones usually are not picked until they literally fall off the tree. Just a small taste can pucker your mouth for hours. It is a powerful astringent.
