These bananas are not ready to eat yet – still too green. So instead of eating them, I decided to sketch them.

It’s funny how confidence comes and goes. I saw someone else’s sketch of some bananas a while ago, and I thought how difficult it must be to get the lines and proportions right; a banana does have rather unique shape after all, and it would be easy to tell if you got it wrong. So I avoided the them. But when I saw them sitting on the counter this morning, I couldn’t not draw them. Sure, I see things I’d like to fix, but it’s just a sketch, right?
