Color added by rubbing on the juice with my fingers. It starts out red, but gets bluer as it dries. I imagine there's an explanation online somewhere, but the Wikipedia article on anthocyanins gets me lost pretty quickly. Any chemists care to help?


I love your blog! I especially like the way you just plunk items down on a page - and there they are - with no need to fill the page around it. I look around and see nothing to draw -- BIG mistake compared to what you do! - Barbara

I wonder if the paper is part of the "chemistry"?

Thanks, Barbara. I think the more I draw, the more I see to draw.

And, Mother Earth, the paper is supposedly "acid free" but I don't know if that means neutral. I haven't thought to test it...
