I played around this weekend with the image of a pineapple. I wanted it to feel tropical and loose, but have enough detail to be recognizable too. Pineapple is about the only thing tropical in this summer so far. We get a decent day, then the north wind whips around again and brrrr. So a foray into something more summer like was warranted. The texture of pineapple is fascinating with each segment looking rather like a little wrapped parcel.
This is done on a half sheet of 200lb paper. Its at the cusp of being overworked as sometimes its easy to overstep the mark without even realizing it. I hope I stopped before I got in too deep on this one.
