Strawberry Shortcake - Simplify Complex Subjects

Still Life For Learning Shadows

Strawberry Shortcake is packed full of mixing great blends of color and tips for success in lots of different complex subjects, plus a little whipped cream.

Use the outline page or reference photos to trace your still life onto your watercolor paper. Then follow the video demonstration and step by step written instructions to paint your own beautiful still life.

You'll learn a lot about simplifying complex subjects and creating different textures, like flower clusters, cake texture and more.

This lesson uses basic colors like reds, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, yellow and some opaque white at the end for highlights and steam.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
