Fractured Pomegranate

Here is a study of a pomegranate I did in a workshop on fracturing.  Fracturing is a wonderful technique developed by Julie Ford Oliver where you paint a painting and then "destroy" it by "fracturing" it with lines you then repaint.  It is not at all easy, but sometimes I can actually produce something I like.  As you can see, it is not like the other two I posted  before in style.  I had a conversation with a dear friend and wonderful artist yesterday and we both are really struggling on what style we like and want to adopt as our own.  I guess if it was easy, it wouldn't be challenging.
