As a botanical artist I get asked to do commissions on specific subjects. Some people want an in depth picture that shows the plant in a very detailed way. This might verge on, or actually be for scientific purposes. Others just want to have their chosen plant displayed as it is in all its glory – such as this pineapple. Its name in latin is: Ananas comosus. The most common cultivar that you and I can buy in the shops is a “smooth cayenne”. Therefore I have called this picture ‘The cayenne smoothie’.
Whilst painting the picture in watercolour, I took a lot of photographs. Unfortunately they vary in quality, but I think that you will be able to see the progression of the pineapple from the first rough sketch until completion. Additionally, you will find a link to a YouTube video on the page of ‘My Tutorials’.
