Fearless Friday, Strawberries!

Let’s paint some strawberries today




The inspiration photo is on the left and the same photo with the Waterlogue Illustration effect right




no sketch first, I wanted to work fast and loose




light shapes from back to front, leaving the highlight areas white





a few more berries




Time for the green tops





Adding darks and tops help define the berries





Laying in the background



Deepening the reds and greens




You can also add details with ink, I actually did the lines below with Picmonkey draw effect

    Jenna, your strawberries are so lifelike I feel like I could reach into the computer to fetch one to eat! I like the painting without the lines added. I also love the Waterlogue app, such fun. I would love to see any of these delicious dishes on my breakfast plate this morning………
    Keep cool, we are going to have a hot weekend!

    Gorgeous Jenna! I hope you’re planning on framing some of your fruit and veggie watercolors to hang in your kitchen! I can’t decide which I like better. Hope you’re staying cool this weekend, it’s too hot to boat here. 🙂

    Beautiful strawberries! You have such an eye. I’m lost from the start, but you always bring things into perfect view after adding the finishing details. I think it’s a brain thing, and my brain doesn’t work that way. If I had the time, surely my brain could be trained. (Wouldn’t Painter Artist Mom love that!?) Your strawberry recipes look divine! 🙂

  10. I really want to try painting someday! You have such a talent!
