Strawberry Season

My favourite fruit strawberries - I absolutely love them.  I was originally going to create a pot with strawberries growing out of it.  When I started drawing it you could hardly see the berries so I changed my mind and did a hanging version.

The image is called Strawberry Season

I started colouring this at work the other day.  Laying down some colour using ProMarkers.  When I got home I got out my polychromos pencils and finished it off (several hours later).  My hand at the end of the night was a claw!!

As I'm putting this image into my shop I wanted to make a CAS card to showcase the image.

All I've done is distress the card and mount it onto some distressed black card.

My finishing touch are some small black gems at the corner of the image.

Hope you love my berries

Andrea. Your image is stunning. I literally did a double-take scroll-back-up both times I came across it on challenge blogs this morning. Now that I see your detail images of the coloring it is even more jaw-dropping. Simply INCREDIBLE. Very very happy to have found your blog and am now following. I designed free digital sketches for readership in the past, but life intervened and I haven't posted any of those in a long time. Your strawberries are wonderful.
Take care!
