Pineapple Painting, and cake.

I started with a fresh pineapple bought ripe a few days ago.

I penciled it onto heavy paper because I know that I use way too much lead when I sketch.  I did get it sketched though.

I think I put more leaves on it than I needed.  I don't need to trace all the leaves onto my watercolor paper though.  I was trying to make it look more alive than it really was.

Then we ate it because it really was very ripe.

I took pictures of it.  The whole thing as above and then several close ups to help me with the painting.
