Gentle restraint

banana copy

My bananas are ripe. Very ripe.

So it was difficult holding them without a terminal squish. Also,  it was unbearably hot today and a food illustration was requested, I took them on. I always like drawing fruit. The shapes never fail to amaze me in context of sculpture or industrial design.

    Beautiful! I like in particular the detail in that area where they are attached to each other, guess there’s a noun for that. Maybe not. (Brownish bananas don’t always taste so good but you can still turn them into a cake for which you need to squash them anyway.) 🙂
