May Sketchbook Challenge – Fruits and Veggies



The other night I hung out in the garage with my son and his friend. They shared a couple of “Angry Orchard Hard Ciders” with me. Tasty, I might add. I don’t drink often and then usually limit myself to one as I have a migraine problem. Luckily, no problem.

I added a sketch of an apple to comply with the May Sketchbook Challenge’s theme of “Fruits & Veggies”.

I used the labels as inspiration, starting with two. I then drew an apple and leaves, coloring them in with colored pencils. To balance the composition of the page I added a third partial label. Next I journaled my thoughts. Feeling like the composition needed more I drew in the apple blossoms and inked over them with a jelly pen. To finish the page I painted a loose wash of Golden Green Gold Fluid Acrylics around all of the components.
