Strawberry Patch - Simple Shapes and Complimentary Colors

Realism Made Easy for Beautiful Berry

Learn the secrets to glowing dark washes and building up realism.

They're both easy to manage when done in small areas, especially with good demonstrations and explanations.

In this lesson, you can download the reference photo and use graphite paper to trace an outline onto your watercolor paper. Then fill in the colors for this sun kissed strawberry and blossoms.

On the step by step written instructions and video, Deb Watson shares some valuable painting tips - easy techniques for glowing darks, building realism with washes of color, and more.

You'll see exactly how to paint a very realistic looking strawberry, by working on value first and detail last.

This painting is done with paper, paint and brushes. No special materials are needed, but touches of opaque white were used at the end.

Happy Painting!

Hi, I'm Deb Watson.

My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.

I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.

I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!

Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.

Happy Painting.
