Citrus (mostly!) Fruit Pattern

Citrus (mostly!) Fruit Pattern - student project

I found some great fruit photography on Pinterest and came up with a few different shapes including a lemon, persimmon, and a strawberry. I found the live trace setting 'sketch art' to be the quickest and most accurate trace of my sketches. I love playing around with the recolor tool after my pattern has been created - it applies a new color palette to the artwork and usually ends up surprising me how much I like the new color combinations.
