The upgraded strawberry

Bored of drawing strawberries? Looking for something new? Why not try strawberries and cream? 😆🍓

Yep, as you can see, not only did I draw a new strawberry, I added a splash of cream to the image too.

I know it’s totally out of place for September, but I loved the last strawberry I drew that I convinced myself to learn from my mistakes, draw another and add a new component.

No need to go in to detail about the strawberry – it’s been said!

But adding the cream was a real challenge, and although I don’t HATE the finished piece, I know I need to work on the colour palette for the dairy. It was hard not to keep reverting to grey to add texture and shading, but I think yellows may have been a better choice.

Another learning curve, but it’s incredibly enjoyable comparing this work to pieces I created this time last year and being able to see improvements.

Any ideas for future drawings would be welcomed!

I’m just about to work on an ocean sunset and forest puddle to mix things up a bit!

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.
