watercolour and ink picnic fruit

For this Throwback Thursday, I have selected fruits I painted three years ago.

There is nothing better than popping sweet, just picked sun-kissed berries into our mouth.  The juicy sweetness can only be enjoyed a few weeks during the summer.  After that, we must be satisfied with frozen or canned berries.

 

 

This is the time to enjoy plump, juicy cherries, sweet cantaloupes, plums and peaches and all the varieties that are fresh and in season.

 And so, with so many fruits available in our farmers’ markets and local grocery stores, I thought of these sketches of baskets laden with produce.
