Strawberries and bananas just go together. Well, so do strawberries and whipped cream. Strawberries and pound cake. Well, anyway, you get the idea.
Start by making your basic heart shape. Notice that on the left hand side there is a little extra curve. Fill in your strawberry color well on the right hand side. Leave the left white. This will be your sunshine.

Take your brown again and fix your ends. Add a few ‘spots.’

And here’s a bonus. Nana taught the pastel lesson. Now, I’m sharing Grandma’s Glazed Strawberries and Bananas recipe. A highly requested favorite!
A note on pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (over 20 now!) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable.
The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.
