And I’m back to fruit…

I’ve spent the last month venturing in to new ideas for my digital art, but I haven’t forgotten my roots – fruit.

Problem is I was getting bored of strawberries 🍓😆. So I had a look online for some new fruit splash inspiration.

I came across a shiny image of a beautiful blackberry 🍇 surrounded by juice. I loved it, so while it’s not a huge leap in to the unknown, I felt more comfortable going back to drawing fruit again.

I already have plans for my next pictures. My partner created some amazing inspiration on his visit to the coast recently as well as a new idea I had to draw a puddle in a forest reflecting trees.

I’ve started both but there’s still a bit of work to do. The puddle specifically has been a real challenge. Making the reflection believable and keeping the items reflected clear has been a real learning curve.

I’ve started using new colours and palettes for both of these projects. The sunset effect over the beach uses blues, yellows and oranges, which seem to have a real calming effect. The puddle has a wide range of muddy browns and orange.

So there will be some different art coming soon!

Thank you to graphicriver.net for the image inspiration for the blackberry. It’s clear that my image is an altered version of one of their vector images, so I wanted to make sure they are credited.

Let me know what you think!

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.
