Illustration Friday -- Citrus

When I saw this week's topic was Citrus, I had a pretty good idea what I was going to draw. I did my second favorite drink of the summer, lemonade. (Iced tea being my first:) )

Here is the sketch of a cut lemon with a glass of lemonade.



I thought it needed more color to it because it looked like fruit next to a glass. So, I added color. Here is the color version.

Good work. Glass and transparency are very hard to draw. Nevertheless, there seems to be something strange in the equilibrium of the citrus: it looks as it was stick on the table. Continue.

yes, I noticed it after I drew the glass. I guess the juice from the lemon caused it to stick in this manner.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

The color adds so much to this one. You've just reminded me, I love lemonade!

Great job Lou! I can tell it's a lemon even without the color. I like how you made it on lined paper as well.

Now if you could just draw me a bottle of Jack Daniels alongside of it...
