Painting Vegetables and Lemons
I start with a light drawing.
I make a mixture of Ultamarine blue and Terra Verte for the background
I add the first wash of background color and wait for it to dry.
I keep a small test stip next to my painting and note the color mix I am using. I will use blue gray for the strips in the cloth.
In watercolor paintings I work my way from top to bottom or to the dries area first.
I keep noting colors that I will be using.
I put the base color on the first and vegetables.
I add more of the local color.
I keep testing colors on the strip at the side of my painting.
I add more color to the vegetables.
Once the first layers of color are dry I apply stronger color using less water washes.
I complete the vegetables I have started and add some base shadows. I put a red ring on the plate and add the plates shadow.
