Day Twenty - An equinoxical watermelon
The sad thing was I wasn't able to get one of the massive melons on Mill Road for this, and being rather ball-shaped the detail at the top is lost. The tree bursts into a shower of leaves above the sun and moon. Still, I prefer this angle where you can see the writing better. Had I had a larger medium to work on I would have done things slightly different to make it obvious that it is day and night - sort of yellow hare and green background on the moon side, and yellow sky and green hare/daff on the sun side.
This is my own design by the way - albeit with influences from various equinox drawings
Trivia: Watermelon smoothies are quite nice with a pinch of cayenne.
