A full page watercolour illustration, to accompany an article on growing your own fruit and vegetables in the garden - for Bon Magazine. I wish I could have seen this in print, but as so often happens in my line of work - I never received my copy!
This commission was perfectly timed for me - as I have just embarked on trying to grow my own fruit and vegetables. I was able to choose what I wanted to paint, so long as it was summery, so I chose strawberries, peas, cucamelons and courgette flowers - and painted them as vibrant and as nutritious as I hope my crop will be!
If you'd like to see how I painted this piece, I filmed some of it's progress in my week-long vlog, to be found on my youtube channel!
Do you grow your own? I'd love to read some tips & tricks!
