drawing copyright Judith Nijholt-Strong
Fruity Kiwi
3.5"h x 2.5"w (ACEO size)
colored pencil on drafting film

*sold*

One medium kiwi (69 grams) contains: 0.79 grams protein, 42 calories and 2.1 grams of dietary fiber.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) - 0.019 mg
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) - 0.017 mg
Niacin - 0.235 mg
Folate - 17 mcg
Pantothenic Acid - 0.126 mg
Vitamin B6 - 0.043 mg
Vitamin C - 64 mg !!!
Vitamin E - 1.01 mg
Vitamin K - 27.8 mcg

Along with eating more kiwi fruit, (though not too much or you get really sick of them), I'm thinking of doing a bigger drawing from this small art card size I did. Or, maybe just do some more small fruits and mat them together in one frame. Not sure, thinking about it though.

For the drawing of the kiwi, 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) - which I just discovered, via Grafix's site, Dura-Lar is also biodegradable.


tot gauw,
Judy
