Oranges & Lemons Illustration

A packaging  illustration which could possibly be incorporated with text for labels for marmalade, fresh handmade lemon tart box, printed onto metal tins for tea packaging. The fast, energetic way that they are draw reflects the sharp, zesty nature of the fruit. I seem to like drawing fruit and vegetables a lot, their natural colours, beautiful shapes and textures as well as the fact that I love to eat them.

I used watercolours to apply the base colour first, and then added marks to represent the different textures and sections of the fruit. Not drawing every detail seen by the eye, but drawing just the right amount of marks to communicate the object to the viewer.
