I was shopping at the grocery store and came across this interesting looking fruit…perhaps you’ve seen it:
It’s called a Dragon Fruit or Pitahaya. According to Wikipedia, it is the fruit of several cactus species indigenous to the Americas. This one came from Vietnam.
I saw it as an opportunity to draw and paint an unusual shape!
Here is my sketch with a black micron pen and a little watercolor:
The fruit is white with black seeds and slightly sweet:
I peeled off the outside pink skin and then sliced the flesh. It was fun to try something new!
Have you ever had Dragon Fruit? How do you prepare it?
Enjoy your day! 🙂
