Fruits I ate this week

Fruits I ate this week - student project

While eating a pear, I was struck by what a pretty fruit it is. So I decided to create a pattern based on fruits I ate within a week.  I often think how lucky we are to be able to enjoy an orange when the snow is blowing outside my window! I created the icons with watercolors and added a bit of colored pencil afterwards.

It was really fun to play with arranging the icons into a pattern tile. I especially enjoyed changing up the background color for different looks. Just for fun, I turned the pattern into a family cook book cover. Great class and instruction!
