Kiwi and Strawberries

I was inspired by my fruit salad that I recently made and then devoured. The quartered strawberries and slices of kiwi made me look twice. Design! I was struck by the beauty of the reds and greens, and by the simple shapes — circles and oddly shaped triangles. Plus the seeds in both fruits, especially the kiwi were a work of art in themselves. The kiwi’s seeds exploded like a star. They looked so fun! And how easy to paint. Easy to make the shapes painted in irregular shapes in watercolor. I used watercolor paper because I think I am going to cut the paper into cards for ATCs. Use a very fine point .025 (Is that right?) black Micron pen for the outlining and to add some simple details. Pretty enough to display or use as a background.
