Pepino Melon–Sketch a Plant Sunday

I was excited to participate  in Steve Asbell’s “Sketch a Plant Sunday” over at The Rainforest Garden. Steve had mentioned wanting to get in the habit of drawing more often and that it has been on my to-do list for a while as well. It seemed only natural that the subject should be plants. This Sketch a Plant Sunday’s subject is a Pepino Melon. It grows pretty happily here on the Central Coast. It is aptly named. It fruit tastes like a cross between a melon and a cucumber and is yummy sprinkled with a bit of chili powder and a dash of lime.  You too can participate in Sketch a Plant Sunday by following the above link to Steve’s blog.

    I love it, Kat! I often see those at the grocery store but haven’t bought them yet since I don’t know what to do with them. Any suggestions? BTW what medium do you use? Is it “Painter”?

      Thanks Steve. I normally just eat Pepinos by themselves, but you can use them in salads or salsa even. They are very much like a slightly sweeter cucumber. I paint in Photoshop. I have Painter, but it still seems so foreign to me.

    I really need to ask you for some psd lessons when it comes to painting! I have a little wacom tablet but got irritated with it and gave up. 🙁
