Strawberry Season by Catherine Ferraz

Who doesn’t love strawberries, even when you have a slight allergy you still can’t help but stop at the stalls and purchase least two large boxes. One for the drive home and the other to munch on during the day, or even make a strawberry tart. Using natural light to enhance the strawberries with their colour and texture ,and a white background as negative space.Of course some balancing skills were necessary. For a little extra coloraturas and texture I added the small wild flowers I found in the garden.
