More light work – strawberry!

I gave myself a new challenge to draw something light again.

After my previous work – the splash – I wanted to continue using a bright colour palette and keep trying to draw new things.

So this time I tried a strawberry. A big juicy, shiny strawberry.

The detail of all the pips was so time consuming. I wanted to make the strawberry as realistic as I could manage. It literally took days to get to this point, but I feel like everything I do now is just pointless polishing.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Of course I had to include a drip of water on the side as well.

Let me know what you think of my latest piece. I’m not sure what I’m going to do next, possibly some more fruit.

Thanks for looking! I’ll be back with something new in a few days.

Hi! I'm Steph, an amateur writer and illustrator specialising in Mental Health and being a self-confessed Spoonie. My website is home to any successful fiction I create, with stories that have won so far covering difficult subjects such as baby loss and mental health in grief as well as some funny and heart-warming tales when I get the inspiration. Every drawing and picture on my website was created by me. I spend a lot of time coming up with illustrations to accompany all of my posts and pages. I try to create original content across all of my channels, whether I'm writing about my own fiction or just generally musing on mental health or my own issues. I want to be part of the change because I believe the understanding of MH in the UK is getting better, but has a very long way to go. By being honest about my own struggles and symptoms I think others will relate and hopefully it will encourage them to talk to someone and get the help and support they need. Long term my goal is to help children too, help them understand their own mental health and how to help with the mental health of those around them. I live in the UK with my partner, daughter and dog, I swear frequently and I adore a well made, traditional, gooey, chocolatey, delicious brownie.
