A continuation of fruit and vegetables series completed with a quick proportion pencil sketch and then watercolor with no ink. Rambutan evergreen tree is native to tropical Southeast Asia and commonly grown throughout Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The fruit is a round to oval single-seeded berry, 3–6 cm long and 3–4 cm broad, borne in a loose pendant cluster of 10–20 together. The leathery skin is reddish (rarely orange or yellow), and covered with fleshy pliable spines, hence the name, which means ‘hairs’. The fruit flesh, which is actually the aril, is translucent, whitish or very pale pink, with a sweet, mildly acidic flavor very reminiscent of grapes. Daniel Smith and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
