These are sugar plums the best representation that I can make. I had eaten a few local plums but not sugar plums. My quick search of photos online tells me that these could be candied plums or maybe glazed with sugar crystals. I did not dig further because the photos made me feel motivated so I immediately started creating this art.
Some brushes are just perfect for a specific effect like in this drawing it was easy creating the sugar coating on the plums. It was a fun experience and felt like I achieved something great just looking at these delicious plums. The background details like the cup and pine needles are added last to give this a festive or holiday look. Hope you like it.
