Watermelon

We are going to be painting a fruit medley very similar to the one painted on the gourd in the header of this page. We are painting some pieces of the fruit individually to learn new techniques.The watermelon slice is done with a slip slap motion of the brush to give texture to the piece. This can pose some difficulties as you do not want to over blend the colors. As in life, sometimes, less is more.

  1. I have my watermelon up now. I worked on it some, it looks a lot better. I am looking forward to that grouping.
