An early autumn greenhouse treat! I painted these at 41 x 31 cm (16 x 12") to capture all that texture to the shiny skin and spiky stems.

Freshly squeezed! This lemon is one of three juicy new tutorials that landed in my online School today. As well as being fun to paint, did you know that lemons: 🍋 are technically berries 🍋 ripen 4-12 months after flowering 🍋were once so rare that kings used to present them to each other as gifts 🍋 were in great demand during the California Gold Rush in 1849 🍋 are so rich in vitamin C that one lemon can provide you with more than half of your recommended daily intake 🍋

Strawberries in watercolour tutorial

Want to paint strawberries? Watch this video to see how I painted these realistic, shiny, 3D strawberries in watercolour using my unique watercolour method.

Some unfinished 'Merryweather Damson' plums, from a live demo I did. Such amazing vibrant colours to them. Think I'll paint them again one day but BIG 🤩 Watercolor Fruit, Watercolor Flowers, Watercolors, Watercolor Paintings, Anna Mason, Vibrant Colors, Colours, Art Inspo, Colored Pencils

These Strawberries have been on the cover of Artists & Illustrators magazine plus they won the International Artist Magazine Grand Prize in 2011! I think it was the funny little mouldy one being in there that got them so much attention!? They'll always be super special to me.

Here's an older and, way smaller, strawberry painting from a couple of years ago. I love how cute these are but my heart is with the BIG ones (see yesterday's post for those!). 🍓❤️ Watercolor Fruit, Fruit Painting, Ceramic Painting, Watercolour Painting, Watercolours, Fruit Illustration, Botanical Illustration, Food Illustrations, Botanical Drawings
