This beautiful Costa Rican super sweet pineapple is sitting on my kitchen table as a center piece at the moment. It looks so nice there, I almost hate to cut it. I thought I had a week or so to allow it to ripen more, but I just read the tag and it says on this particular type, the sugar pine, color does not indicate ripeness. The tag states that once the pineapple is harvested, they no longer mature and it should be consumed as soon as possible. Well, at least I got a pineapple sketch and it was pretty while it lasted!
I also got another challenge sketch this morning from Shaun Dore. He writes; "Here is my contribution to your challenge. I have not been sketching for long so I have a lot to learn. However, I really enjoyed preparing this today." Thanks Shaun. I see you were holding your pencil like a wand too. Good job!
Here today are the photos for this year's final sketching challenge.
