Summer time! Painting practice with cute little fruit buddies.

If you want to achieve good results, you need to practice a lot. When we paint a lot of repeating or look alike elements we actually learn how to paint them.

Each time you painting the same elements, you learn more about shading, colors, blending etc.

I want to offer you to spend some time with me, practicing painting some cute summer fruit buddies. You’re welcome to download the sketch to be able to start the lesson right away.

I divided this lesson into three parts. I believe it will be easier for you to keep up with me this way. But just in case, I uploaded the whole video lesson in the very end.

Hope you will enjoy it. Let’s begin.

1. Let’s paint the greens first.

I decided to start from greens, because it seems easier and logic.
Actually, it’s always easier to start from the top and go to the bottom, because this way it’s less likely that you spoil the painting.


2. Now, let’s paint the rest.

When our green part has dried out, we can continue to paint the rest of the bodies. I picked a bright red color. You can pick any other color you like.


3. Finishing touches.

In the last part I drew some little things that belongs to these fruit, like watermelon seeds or little tiny lines for apples. I did this with the use of Uni Pin Pen. It’s the only pen that I know that works well with watercolors and will never bleed.


All parts together
