Remind me never to buy cheap fruit. This Gala melon looked fine, felt ripe, but tasted like nothing. At least I was able to sit and paint the thing this morning whilst the neighbour’s cat clamoured for me to feed him – which I won’t!
I’ve been trying to paint some strawberries but keep getting tied up in details and rejecting them (the paintings not the strawberries – luckily I have a few growing in the garden so I can keep trying!). This was my second attempt at the melon but has more the feel I was aiming for… and I got to drink two cups of tea.
