Thank you...I may just take you up on that offer! This is just the way I like a banana...perfectly yellow. As soon as they get spots, I'm over them...

Good thing you didn't draw spots :)

Teri C said...

Great job and unusual for you to use colored pencils isn't it? It looks so real Andrea and good enough to eat.

Had to enlarge this and see and appreciate the details in both the banana and background! Yowza! *jaw drop* again. I like that this is "different," not typical AJ but you, still. Do you feel yourself expanding?

Just perfect.

I am just having fun imagining "have a banana" as a Smiths lyric.

Felicity said...

I love the use of colour on the banana, it really suits your style!

Anita said...

Lovely rendering and I like how you treated the background too!

juj said...

Cheers everyone!

Teri, I use colour pencils quite a lot but usually mixed media, perhaps with ballpoint etc.

Jason, you have to say 'ave a banana' in a Cockney accent. Have a go!

Thank you all. I like this banana, shame about the background.

Hi
Great blog - really enjoyed looking and reading what you had to say.
I have a lot of drawings and sketchbooks going back twenty years on my blog (address above) and I thought you might like to see them from one scribbler to another as it were!
best wishes

You beat me to it! I was going to draw a banana for the B in my fruit & veg series but I don't dare now, this one is so perfect. Delicious.

Fricka said...

I disagree suzanne, they're better with the spots!

a lovely banana i must say, its incredible how much detail you find in something which i'd just colour in all yellow...

Elizabeth said...

I LIKE the banana, especially how you've drawn/coloured the skin.
