Dreaming of Summer Fruit
It has been a warmer January than is typical, but a cold front has just gone through which really has me wishing for the warmer days again. I have 3 new painted patterns up in our print on demand shops this week: blood oranges, pineapples, and strawberries. Blood oranges are actually in season this time of year and are one of my favorites. I love anything flavored with blood orange this time of year. I do miss eating fresh strawberries from my garden, and we are looking forward to our sweet spring berries. Pineapples are a more summer treat and are just a fun way to brighten up a winter day.
The pineapples are a simple watercolor pattern of yellow, orange and green hues. The blood oranges are actually mixed media of watercolor, colored pencil, and white ink. The strawberries were painted digitally with procreate. I love the way I can feels very natural to paint on my iPad, but still get a realistic texture from the brushes.
