And Still More Vitamin-C ~ Strawberry colored pencil drawing

.

Strawberry Skies
3.5"h x 2.5"w (ACEO size)colored pencil on drafting film
*sold*

One cup of whole strawberries contains:
0.96 grams of protein, 46 calories and 2.9 grams of dietary fiber
Vitamin A - 17 IU
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) - 0.035 mg
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) - 0.032 mg
Niacin - 0.556 mg
Folate - 35 mcg
Pantothenic Acid - 0.18 mg
Vitamin B6 - 0.068 mg
Vitamin C - 84.7 mg !!!
Vitamin E - 0.42 mg Vitamin K - 3.2 mcg

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm recently obsessed with my Vitamin-C intake. If you've had the horrid cold I just had, you might be obsessed with "pumping C's" too! I still have a lingering cough ... ack!

For the drawing of the strawberry, I used:
Colored Pencils ~ Caran d’Ache Pablos, Faber-Castell Polychromos, Talens Van Gogh regular colored pencils
Grafix Dura-Lar ~ acetate/drafting film (matte surface, medium weight)

It's pleasing to work in this small size on drafting film. I might frame this strawberry together with the kiwi. Here's an idea of how they would look framed together (I've used a digital frame for this mock-up):

Or maybe I'll do a drawing of a tangerine in this size, on drafting film, and frame it along with the kiwi and strawberry. Hard to decide because I do like these two images together ... though three is also a nice number. Decisions, decisions! ;o)

tot ziens,
Judy
