Fruit

There are so many wonderful kinds of fruit available at our fingertips today, and because of modern shipping methods we can get most kinds at all times of the year. This is quite a shame as I remember having fruit in season and only in season! So strawberries were a summer fruit; apples, blackberries and pears an autumn fruit and oranges a winter fruit. They taste better at the right times of year, and especially when they are left on the plant to grow and ripen, being sold locally rather than flown halfway around the world!!

For Make A Moo this week I have hand drawn my fruit in black fineline pen and then added colour with watercolour pencils. I added hand written words in a sepia pen and finished the edges with chalk eye.
