Artificial

I love watermelon and probably buy it for how it looks, more than for the taste. The colours are so bright they actually look artificial.

Looks delicious! I love the contrast of this fruit...looks are part of the taste... isn't that the reason for garnishing?

Hello Nicky.
Wow! I super love this piece, with my favourite colour in-Green,green,green!
I also love red too, it's merry merry mood!

As summer is hot, it's great to have a few slices to ease our thirst. Love the fine texture you introduced here for your water melon.

Your forte is painting objects of nature. I feel great and happy that your illustration ease my thirst. Really, it helps!

I wonder what a person with no food and water will do and react while standing in midst of desert seeing this piece.
It will be a relief and a positive hope to survive just because of your illo.

I am very fine, don't worry of me. I am very happy now as I have many illustrated project to handle...also exercise. It's great how God brings me back to him.
I love him and hope you also find the same way too!

Take care and I will be back again to talk to you here:)

Cheerioo Nicky and also to your adorable Jack Russell.

Pls. kindly feature Jack Russell in your upcoming post, I really seeing this cutie!
