Strawberry try-out

 I felt an urge to paint today but I was lazy to make any pencil sketch. So I decided to pick up one piece of our strawberries in the kitchen and sketched it in watercolor. I had some fun doing those small seeds on the outer part of the fruit. They were not so difficult to do but I have to do it piece by piece.
I think I have to practice more on making shadows, that one above is not really good. If you want to see some lovely strawberry paintings, you can check Christiane Kingsley's blog, she had painted a few.

  3. Dankje Renske. De aardbeien in onze keuken zijn van uit Holland, dus zijn ze echt vers en knapperig.

  8. Thank you Pat for your encouraging comments. I love the idea that you find it splendidly done. That's really a great motivation for me. Oh you also like the shadow that I thought awfully done.
