About This Class

Let's paint simple fruit and veg together! I really enjoy painting these sorts of subjects in this fun, direct style, and I'd like to teach you how I do it! Follow along as I run through the drawing stages for each subject, and then a few nice quick painting stages as well. I'm using a very limited palette for this one (just 4 colours) so you don't need to worry about buying the entire art store to join in the fun!

1. Introduction: Hey, everybody, Today we're gonna learn how to do some nice, quick and simple fruits and vegetables in water culture. The name of the game today is to not worry about trying to create a photo, realistic looking bell pepper or avocado. Whatever we're gonna be doing in this tutorial. Fruits and vegetables have infinite variations to them. So why worry about trying to capture the exact likeness off one you might have picked out of the supermarket are found on Google images. For your reference, don't worry about it. I'd like you to follow along with all the little steps that I'm going through into pick up on the little tips and tricks that I'll be giving out. Yeah, mostly. Just having fun. I mean, I had so much fun doing this. It was the first time that I painted in watercolor in a while on just this yellow by itself . Put me in such a good mood. I don't even know why. Uh, I guess. Yeah, I was just a happy killer, you know? So I hope this brings you as much joy as it brought me to make. Please enjoy yourself. And if you get to the end and you've produced something of your own I would totally love If you could show it to me You can send it to me here on skill share or on Instagram. That would be amazing. It would totally make my entire day. Yeah, just have fun. Go for it. 2. Supplies used in this tutorial: already. Let's get into the supplies I'm using in this tutorial. First paint Shadow Violet by Daniel Smith I really like this. It's a very nice, cool, ready, mixed shadow color that I just like to use for the shadow areas. I know it's probably kind of lazy kind of cheating, but I like to use it. You just glaze in shadows. Next is the blue I'll be using its yellow blue green shade, also by Daniel Smith on its the blue of this primary triad that I'm using the next. His new Gamboa is by Windsor and units, a nice, warm sort of yellow color kind of golden hued like in a lot magenta is the red that I'll be using. Magenta is, of course, the typical kind of primary read that you'll find in your printer at work or at home. Andi. I find it very versatile, so I like it a lot. Brushes have a number three quill brush by Rafael here told a lot of water, and so I'm going to be using it primarily to cover large areas kind of quickly. Even though these paintings will be very large, it's still a good idea to use the biggest possible brush to get the color and Dyson fast for a good, solid, even flat wash. I have a number eight round next. This is for more sort of fine detail on DSO on comes to a very nice point, as you can see, and that's really great for just getting into those little nooks and crannies in the painting. Here is just some tape Painter's tape for keeping the edge is nice, and straight uniforms have some regular tissue paper like the kind you buy when you have a head cold. I just for blotting out things that lifting up color and areas that I don't want it in. This is a click eraser, just 40 racing pencil lines. If I make a mistake when I'm drawing, which I'm definitely gonna do that's okay, though. Pencils, This is a three B pencil. Normally, I wouldn't use such a dark pencil for the drawing stage, but I'm just using this now for the benefit of what's going on camera. It's just easier to see. I think something like a four age pencil or a to H pencil is better, because was this graphite? It doesn't smudge so much when you're painting. Andi, it's generally Tidier looking. Paper is £90 arches. Cold press paper arches is fantastic paper. So it is. I don't necessarily think that you need to invest in the super thick, heavy paper unless you're gonna be doing many, many layers. This works just fine for what we're gonna be doing today. Onda Last but not least, this is just looking for water. I got this with my wife and hard juku, so there's a nice little memory behind it. It's a bit guilty if he stays, but yeah, it still means something to me. So I'm gonna be putting my water in there. 3. Bell Pepper Drawing Stage: already. Let's begin withdrawing the bell pepper. I fancy drawing the stalk first. So let's do that. Um, yeah, it is rather a ah gloomy march day. So after we finish our pencil drawing, I'm sure I'm looking forward. Toa injecting some color into today. As I mentioned already, I'm so not into feeling under pressure to capture on your real likeness here. I'm just trying to get some general shapes in, get like, this part of this stalk that's just all sort of, you know, front facing. And it's lighter. All right, That might be a bit wide. As I said, I don't Don't care too much a little Grandma Clicking Racer. It's gonna knock back this part of this dog here. That seems like a smart move. Actually, I might before go the painter's tape. I just decided that there now. Yeah. Kind of capture some parts here off the, uh, the green bit again. War technical flora classifications for you. Yes, we can. All right, I'm gonna draw in a few highlights spots. This is the highlight. I'm gonna leave totally white. I think there's another one up here. I find it's nice just to totally leave these areas white so that you can remember not to paint in them. Or perhaps that's the area that you'll save later for your opaque white If you're going to use an opaque white maybe quash paint or something similar. All right. This guy goes down here a little bit. I guess I find it super helpful with sort of drawing toe. Actually, nobody look at the page too much more. Just look at the reference and that your hadn't kind of do its thing, you know? All right, here we go. And we're just building. That's what we're doing. We're just building control, like an abstract shape here at the top and bring it down a little. You can't see the reference photo I'm working from right now, but this totally looks nothing like it. And you know what? That is fine. That is totally fine. I'm gonna go down here a little bit, and then we're gonna go over here a little bit. We're gonna go chopping the end of this off a little bit. That's totally fine. Bear. That's told me. Avella Pepper. That's awesome. Very good. Some of these highlight areas I'm going to leave completely White. Like I said already, there's I'm going to leave kind of open for just a single layer of paint. I'm marking those now. These were gonna be, like a single layer areas right here. How we show how well the pepper kind of catches the light and how sort of shiny it is soared. Yeah. So, like, here's the highlight area here will be just a single layer of paint. There's a highlight in your too, I guess that's totally fine. There's a highlight here. I guess I'm literally being very no direct about it. This what I mean? Yeah, I like and yeah, it's clear. It's obvious you don't make it obvious for yourself. You know, don't make it possible for you to lose the under drawing. Um, especially if you're just starting out. It's only two possible to lose the under drawing if you paint over an area you didn't mean to paint over. So be bold with the pencil strokes if you want to. Okay, that's about it. This is a shadow. Good to see matching pre catching lines. Yeah. Cool. Okay, there's our Bill Piper 4. Bell Pepper Painting Stage 1: Okay, So just for the crack, as we say, we're gonna try painting all of these at once. I want the bass player for the most part to just be the yellow. Then you gumbos. So have mixed up the whole black of the new GAM bows on. I'm just gonna go ahead and charge in with that's, you know, we have spike of color. Uh, it appears my brush is a bit too wet. That's okay. It's gonna go from top to bottom, taking care to avoid my highlight areas. Because, of course, I want to keep those kind of devoid of paint for now. Except, of course, for these areas here, which are my my kind of mid tones. Not quite highlights. Not quite. Shadow areas. That's next, Right, Yellow. Here we go. This is making me quite happy, actually, because, as I said, it's kind of a gloomy day here in Japan. And yellow is the color of happiness, right? That's right. Didn't Henry the eighth where yellow after one of his wife's died? Why was diet Excuse me? What? What a tasteless thing to dio. Your wife dies and you're just like I'm gonna rock the yellow today. Definitely. That's not for me. I would steer clear yellow on a day like that. Your hopes Easy. I've used a bit too much water tonight. Good job. Look. Good job. Okay. Yeah, that's quite a lot of paint on that left side. But you know what? I might leave it because you know what? Color is kind of more concentrated there, So I really don't mind if I have a lot of, uh, of pavement from that side. Think just in retrospect, this brush might have been a bit of a mistake. That's okay. All right. I'm gonna leave that to dry for now. 5. Bell Pepper Painting stage 2: that, uh, friend Bell Pepper is dry now, so I'm gonna be getting some more new campos charging into those areas that are distinctly yellow but just darker than these sort of kind of lighter areas that I've cordoned off with pencil earlier in the trying stage. Um, so I'm gonna to take a bit here because it's quite quite yellow here on this inside portion of this talk, but also here back. Yeah, I really love this yellow where it's making me so happy. That's crazy. Yeah. Yes, it's fun. Actually, the sun has come out a little bit. The main public is my laundry is kind of blocking the sunlight because I only have one window to this room minutes onto my balcony where the laundry goes. Here's that. Yeah, there we go. That's looking much better already. I do apologize for this shadow being cast here. I can't do too much about it. Unfortunately, even the best paper will will warp on you when you read it. That's just what it does. Fortunately, is one of those things you have to get over with watercolor, that it does have those kind of tendencies Teoh to kind of fight you a little bit. Do you want to run all over the place to create little no imperfections surface that you're using? Make life a little difficult for you, but it's worth coming to terms with? Certainly, I think, figuring it out, it's, uh, more mercurial tendencies. Yeah, there we go. I like that. Like that. A lot, actually. So I'm gonna leave that there and wait for the next painting stage, but everything else is dry. 6. Bell Pepper Painting Stage 3: All right, let's crack on with the, uh, bell Pepper house called 11. What's going on? So I am for thinking about already some green stalk down here. It comes over here as well, because it's more. It's more, uh, yellow, then green on the right side. Let's talk. I'm just gonna leave it, I think. Let it that variation. I must have paint over this highlights. I'm gonna leave. This white is dead. I think that's fair trade. Be careful to preserve the other highlights. So I am. I put my hand in the avocado. I did this the little that's okay. Maybe maybe I didn't actually know. I think it's fine. Mine too. Just This is a very light layer of green here just for fun. You can even really see that all that well, but just a little green. Because, of course, this thing isn't completely Yeah, on it Does that for some nice variation in tone, which I quite like, quite enjoy. It gives it quite I sketchy. Look, I think that's pretty good. I think these are all just come in with shadow color a little bit. Get down in here if the, uh, shadow colors to darken it a bit. Give it a bit more sort of substance. No more green will do the trick. Yeah, very good. 7. Final Pepper Painting Stage: okey dokey. I'm just kind of finished this guy up. Then with the shadow Violet, you must come here a little because he doesn't need too much variation in terms of talents . It's fairly well lit terms. If I'm working from the reference photo. Oh, it's a little here around the edge here. That's good. Here. Find Go some shadow down in here. It's part of sort of concealed by these for a dome shaped parents of vegetable, which pepper is your favorite? I like the red one most. To be honest, bet one tastes the best. I mean, it's sort of nothing was kind of hit or miss for me, to be honest, but it is the most interesting color if you have to give it bad. So yeah, there we go. That's it. More or less might as well shut up here at the bottom. So get the feeling that it's sitting on top of something. It's not just floating in space. Yeah, that works. All right, can the same technique just introducing the color to the page and then dragging it away with some clean water to kind of blend out Very good 8. Avocado Drawing Stage: he dokey, Let's crack on with the avocado. Kind of a controversial fruit, isn't it? Supposedly one of those super foods. But then again, apparently that's not even a real thing like super fruit or superfood isn't a real thing. And also it apparently causing afirman address in the world. What's your take on the avocado? Starting with the kind of egg shaped pits. I'm just gonna draw a circle here on this part here. This is where the light's hitting it. So that's fine. I'm gonna kind of neglect that Does. Firas paint application goes and there's a layer here as well. It's kind of half tone. I guess I'm not gonna put too much painting here. Maybe just a single there and, uh, yeah, crack on drawn the rest of it. Gonna give it kind of a flat edge here right now. Yeah. Take this lying down around here, I fear I've drawn the pit a bit too large. That's okay, I decided. Not like that. Bring me down. Okay. I used to get so that when I started drawing and again on the avocado is very large. It's like the half filled chip bag of fruit world you know when you buy a bag of chips and it's like there's six chips in here, that's all. And then you know Russia's air When you open up in avocado, it's like this thing is literally 90% seed destroying this part here. This is the top part of the food, the outside of fruit, that lovely green color. And this is gonna be darker. Help us demonstrate the three dimensionality of the shape. Next, we're gonna do the other half of the avocado has that lovely yellow interior story with top . We're gonna draw through this party here. This happened The avocado was actually underneath first half drawn. But in terms of continuity, line continuity, it's better to draw the entire shape and, uh and so forth because, yes, the line does disappear beneath this half of the avocado. But if you want to be able to tell that it's really there, you should ideally be trying it. Anyway, I've been just erasing it later, which I'm gonna do. If you haven't gotten your racer like this. I suggest investing in one because it's just so much more accurate and less messy, your standard sort of rectangular Brickey racer already. You know what I'm calling it? That's done. Goodbye, eraser poop 9. Avocado Painting Stage 1: Let's move our friend the avocado. Over. Forgive me. My desk is It's appalling, you know? No, those that marks of a care warm table, I think you know, art has happened on this year table, so it's kind of a nice thing. You? Yeah. Same color. We're gonna use the same color. I'm gonna put it everywhere, because why not? I was gonna put it everywhere. It's the base color. This is like the mood off the painting. You know, you gotta put it over this part here. Yes, I know. I just intruded into the highlight area, but what I'm actually going to do there is I'm just gonna gonna lift the color out pigment here, Derek, over this week. Cool. Get my tissue. My trusty high tech art supply. That is the tissue. And I'm just gonna I have this. And after God's fried, it's not quite quite it's not gonna be white ever again. But that's fine. That's fine. I actually just back in. You don't. If you can tell, maybe you look very closely, but here you can see that the graphite has kind of run a little bit. That's one. The reasons that you're going to want to steer clear of very, very dark pencils for, uh, watercolor 10. Avocado Painting Stage 2: already while the other fellow's air dry. Let's do the, uh, green parts of the avocado. So I have a light mix of the new gambo on the then the green blue shade on. Going to be, for the most part, sticking to the perimeter off the avocado with this kind of green, As you can see, that's about right. Yeah. Yeah. Qualities for how the paper is kind of pilled. Here it's casting shadow. Now, that is one disadvantage to using the kind of a lighter great of paper. Obviously, it's going toe war more sort of dramatically where thicker paper will not, uh, here as well to kind of help show the depth a little bit. Yeah, that's pretty good. Just more pigment down here, I think. Yeah, that's roughly it. What I'm gonna do next isn't going to clean the excess pigment off my brush. Just get a little water on it on. I'm going to drag paints into the, uh, other areas. This has the effect of leaving more concentrated color towards the outer area, pulling in some pigment towards the inner area where it's paler. You know yourself. You know yourself you have a kind of ways paler here. Darker here? No, it's kind of my thinking, uh, this question before. If you want some more queen here every year, cleaning the brush again and dragging the pigments inwards on a bit, that's good. 11. Avocado Painting Stage 3: All right, let's go back to the avocado. I have noticed you concoct something of a brown from my primary tree. Odd. And that's a big tip for today's video as well. Get to know your primary triage. I really recommend if you're a beginner toe war college just by in three cultures, you know, a yellow, blue red. I'm getting to know them really well. Like, what can you do with, um, how can you bend them this way? That is not gonna be a perfect brown. It's obviously a mixture of yellow red to make the orange. And then I neutralized it with the blue. It doesn't look quite brown. You know it does because oh, my goodness, having so much fun, What's going on? I feel so happy. All of a sudden family. I stick to graphite. So I guess this splash of color is really, you know, waking up part of my brain that I don't usually exercise. Here we go as before, cleaning the brush with water, getting off excess pigment and then pushing out the pigment where I wanted to go so that it's got this kind of softer look in this direction where the half Tony's where there's a little light but quite direct light. Okay, Also, this part here is or green someone that's amore green. This is a stronger green that I initially used. Racer going kind of the way. Yeah, There we go. It's going to really help us show the three dimensional shape of the avocado. I was gonna go around, hold on account of their again, clean the paint from the brush. Missed soft the edge a little bit to introduce more variation too. There we go. That's quite nice. I think I returned back to the green. The mixed, more great job, Luke, That's OK. That is totally okay or clean up here. Clean around here. Gotta be careful not to put my hand into the pumpkin, which is still drying. I do that all I need to figure out how to make a complete mess every time I'm painting or drawing. When did by their comforting graphite or water colors. So I did. Yeah. There we go. That's fine. And I think I'll do just while I'm here, I'm gonna do the final, like shadow painting stage or anything yet, but I might as well throw some shadow about it more than that, surely into this little depression here. Just so you know, this is where the pit of the avocado so grab a bit more If he lies between the two halves of the avocado, we're not. When I do that, strike it out. You'll see the color separating in this. This is a mixture of blue orange in green. So it is Looks quite nice. So it does. I don't decide to do so, but as well while I'm here while I meet her. Cool. Okay. 12. Final Avocado Painting Stage: final painting stage for the avocado was gonna be very similar to the bell pepper just using her well, neutral, our shadow violets. It's very important to really make this it look nice, that intense because it is darkest color picture. Did you kill that works more or less could introduce it down here to might as well just accentuate the The Rhine guesses it. A. Ryan is that we call. It's a ride on an orange anyway. But is it a riot on an avocado? I just wanna call it appeal. That's a little doubt here, too. Concave depression. I don't want to call it the Hollow. The Hollow, I guess, Left behind by the pit. All right. I might as well grab just a little bit more pigment like just this area. Stop it in. Let it do its thing. You know, I don't want to think about it too much, right? There we go. There's our avocado 13. Pumpkin Drawing Stage: Okay. As you can see, I actually added, like the interior sort of com cave shape. That is the depression caused by the pit. A little line here. That's sort of like a shadow area in the reference photo that's scooped this guy out of the way. You know, Onda? Uh, yeah, let's get a drawn. The pumpkin is gonna be fun, actually painted this guy before I use different colors, but I mean, pumpkins, pumpkins, a pumpkin. So it's gonna be roughly the same deal. It's got a fairly long stark with a fun kind of pointy edge. I'm gonna draw that like that. Take it down here. Yeah, that regards in nice shape. All right. Sort of like a tree truck on top of the, uh, top of the pumpkin. Here we go. That's it. That's it. Simple is that and you're just breaking it down into the shapes that you can see. I mean, I look at the reference photo and I see this part here. The top part of the stork, It's like, you know, a stretched out circle, so destroying it stretched out circle. And then, you know, this part here is a kind of funny rectangle doing the same thing. That's all I'm thinking about simple shapes. And there's a little highlight down here. Gonna leave. Actually, it stretches up here a little bit, so I'm gonna leave this area roughly. Whites salts. What are you here? It looks roughly white to my eyes. Yes. I'm simplifying you a bit too much. Maybe it's part here is gonna be a shadow. And you can even do some, you know, some hatching lines to kind of remind yourself. Oh, yeah, There's a shadow. I don't wanna paint their or rather, I do wanna paint there. You make it even darker. All right. Cool. Do the rest of pumpkin had some pumpkin for dinner last night? Actually, nice. Haven't done that before. Just boiled it. I'm so bad at cooking. I just like anything that I can throw into a pot of water. You know, incinerate. Or, you know, 10 minutes is good. Put a timer on my phone, walk away from it, come back, and I have delicious, nutritious food. I mean, hopefully it's delicious. You never know. All right. It was kind of flatter on the bottom. Let me have ourselves a curve. Have an awful bad habit of drawing lines like this in sections as opposed to train to develop. You know, skill for drawing a line in one single motion. I notice when I do it, though, my wrist is locks. I'm kind of attempting to draw the line from the elbow. So there's an idea you go might refine the shape a tiny bit off camera. Uh, this is roughly it. There's a light shape up here. This part here it's in shadow, for the most part in this year's kind of like the mid toad there. That's good. I'm gonna call that too. All right. I actually know what I'm gonna show. First you go good. A shadow going out underneath it cuts big shape. It's black of a bunch of light. Yeah, here we go. There's our pumpkins on the drawing stage is complete 14. Pumpkin Painting Stage 1: all right. The pumpkin have already thrown in the, uh, for the gallery green. But main body of the pumpkin is kind of reddish orange color. So I gotta use you get bows with Magenta for this next part. I was gonna introduce it up here at the top. You're clear of the highlight. I want to preserve, and you take it down to the main area. Okay? And that's totally fine. Make sure that they get it all. Yeah, my introduced slightly more pigment just into the, uh, left hand side. A bit more magenta. According again, booze when you get both comes from. And I remember now, Mr Soiree? Sure. Either way, three lovely Daniel Smith had a fantastic new gambo, but they're running the original pigment They used, like the ones you're immune. See how this one works? Yeah, there we go. More potent looking. All right, I'm calling it. There we go. First Painting stage is done 15. Pumpkin Painting Stage 2: the bell pepper hasn't actually dried yet. So gonna skip to the Kim on Introduce a whole bunch More magenta and new gambo sh into the mix darkening shadow area, making the color nice and deep and then again has before cleaning my brush of excess water and pigments on using it to drag pigment into this new area. The dry area. But there's I haven't even blend of it across the painting. That's about right, because not so I think I'll also introduce a bit more green into the stock's going to return to the number eight round. Um, not too much water because they don't want it believed all over. But it's not to him. Too bad I'm disgusted. This part here, We'll green up here down here and then someone this site, which is quite dark. Yeah, there we go. That's good. 16. Pumpkin Painting Stage 3: you're gonna add some contrast ing tones to the start with the pumpkin is the same sort of mix. The failure Green blue shade. Your gambo is just more blue. That's all a little bit more blue down into the stock. This area here is going to be covered with shadow Violet later anyway, So I don't need to worry about being too accurate with it. Andi. In fact, while in a year think I might as well just throw on the shadow Violet, because it should behave itself, it shouldn't run all over the place for the most part. So upset, Daisy, discover the paint. And how can you see what I'm doing over here? Let's to start down here. Look up here. Here you Honestly, this party early extreme left is pretty much entirely shadows. We go quietly. It used to be just a little bit. We go and I might as well, because there is that shadow under the pumpkin here Might as well just stick underneath Way to kind of merges with the shape of the pumpkin itself. Nice makes him look like they're one sort of thing. And you can see it's running a little bit. We just moved that you can see it's running. Never mind. That's okay. 17. Final Pumpkin Painting Stage: Let's return to the pope, kid. I keep saying, let's return like I'm not doing it in sequence. Of course, I'm not recording it in sequence, but it's gonna be playing sequence that might be a bit irritating for you guys is gonna get old quickly. Do you apologize? No. Spread this up here, Star keeper. Yeah, I quite like that. Beauty of this sort of cattle color is that it is quite opaque if you you really charging with it, You make it thick. Otherwise, it is quite transparent. If he's only a very little, pretty small event. Nice that works. I think I'll switch to be Quil Brush. Just like what? You didn't like going. Okay? I think I'll paint it all in one stroke, actually, everything Right now I need to invest in one of those lapel mikes so that talking to quietly, some aware that microphone boat is quite far away from me, So definitely during that little bit. All right, That's quite good, I think. Darkening it in layers, not thinking too much of that course. It has all these, you know, crevices and no imperfections on the surface of it. But oh, we care for spending all that much time on that sort of stuff. I'm not trying to make a photograph over here. Certainly not trying to express myself with the color, you know, have fun. It is fun. Satisfying what? You just go down on the people. That's good enough for me. Think. Makes it a little bit. Yeah, that looks here on this side. That's a bit money. That's OK. Kind of a complicated thing to do, isn't it? To approximate the color like that because you are just eyeballing it. Not gonna get it right all the time. That's all right. No words.

I think it's mix of this color and that color definitely comes with experience. And I'm still very much on that journey. I find just fun, because how would you want to be able to skip to the end of something? Enjoy the burying process. Here we go.
