I did this little piece for the Creative Corrospondance Course a year or so ago and I still love it. Of all the bits I did for the course, this is my favourite, and it always makes me smile. The assignment was about fruit, and I struggled at first to find something that interested me. I picked an apple because the colour contrast is so great within the one piece of fruit, and we look at them all the time and see them everywhere but often don't appreciate how pretty they can be.
I added the ants for personality :)
