Sketch into Spring: #4 Illustrate the stages of growth.

When I first saw this prompt, I thought, Whaaat!? And when I saw what other people in the Flickr group had done, I felt very intimidated. In fact, I nearly skipped this prompt altogether ((hanging head))
But yesterday was a beautiful bright day and my hubby had just potted up our tomato plants when I saw the buds and some wee flowers and some immature fruit and remembered I had some tomatoes on the vine in my kitchen. *Light bullb!* Lol. I took several photos and then took more photo's of my strawberries that are also just beginning to flower and produce immature fruit there too! Hmm, maybe I'd do both!
I didn't. But I may have a go at doing the strawberries this evening; I don't know yet.

I used a pencil to lightly sketch, then went over it with a fine liner pen and then coloured with my watercolour pencils and an aqua brush. 
I am quite pleased with the results. Whodathnunk?! Lol. I'm really looking forward to the next one, which is, 'Get loose'. Intrigued? Well you can either join in and check it out, go through the flickr images or wait and see what I come up with, hehe. 

But until next time............
.......thanks for popping by to say 'Hi' *hugs*
