Meet Anna Mason and start by learning Anna’s expert approach to creating watercolors with breathtaking realism. Find out how to see shapes of color, what Anna terms as “visual texture,” and discover how it will benefit your work.
Strawberry: Lightest & Darkest Tones (12:32)
Learn how to paint a plump strawberry. Anna shows you how to bring the smooth, shiny texture of this fruit to life. You’ll learn how to complete the initial wash, block in the seeds and paint the darkest areas to establish your painting’s tonal range.
Strawberry: Midtones (11:21)
Continue work on your strawberry by building up midtones and lighter tones. Then, create dimensionality in even the tiniest seeds as you learn how brushstrokes help create form and communicate texture.
Strawberry: Finishing Touches (22:01)
Find out how to adjust lights and darks through a process called “tonal juggling,” for realistic hues in your work.
Peach: Initial Washes, Darks & Midtones (20:00)
Apply your new skills as you paint a peach! Explore the unique texture of this fruit, and watch as Anna lays down the lights, darks and initial midtones.
Peach: Balancing Texture & Form (25:06)
Finally, create that sometimes-tricky fuzzy texture by balancing high contrast, small brush strokes. Then, give your peach a unifying wash and add a few last touches for a realistic effect.
