Fruit Bowl and Bananas


Two little watercolors done at the dining room table with the kids. Pen and ink first, so the lines are there, and you just have to leave them. The bowl is out of whack, and the pear is funky, but this was for fun, so it doesn't matter. Aren't bananas fun to do? They just seem so cooperative. It's been so long since I've posted to this blog, that it feels good to just do something for the sheer fun of it. I really want to get outdoors with the watercolors now too, and play with those as well as the oils. Happy Spring, everyone!

Hi Nel, I just stumbled upon your blogand I really like the way you drew the fruit. Bananas may be easy for you, but they are not for me. ;)

Take care,
Kerstin

:-) Yep, I'd agree -- bananas are the most doodle-able of fruit! Great colors on these!

This is beautiful! The bananas are jumping off the page! I also like the step by step instructions below - always wanted to find out how to begin with the darks.

Hi, Nel. I just cruised over here from Laura's blog, and I checked out your daily paintings too. All your work is just beautiful, so rich and colourful, and with such a sensitive line. I'll be dropping by frequently from now on.
