A new series of fruit and vegetables series completed with a quick proportion pencil sketch and then watercolor with no ink.
The garden strawberry is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria (collectively known as the strawberries). It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. The fruit (which is not a botanical berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in prepared foods.The garden strawberry was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s via a cross of fruit from eastern North America and Chile.
