Fearless Friday, Simply Citrus

I’ve been focusing on citrus this month and even though we painted citrus tags last week, I was itching to paint some citrus with watercolor

 

citrus-sections

 

Just simple shapes and colors

 

orange-study

 

I painted the whole fruits with the wet into wet technique, painting the shape and then dropping in deeper colors with the tip of the brush while the shape was still wet.

If the area has dried you can brush it lightly with clear water or spray, and then drop in additional color

 

tangelo

 

The tangelo section above left was painted by loading the brush with new gamboge, orange and Quinacridone rose, and letting the colors mix on the paper

The whole tangelo, above right, and the grapefruit below, were  painted with the wet into wet technique

After filling the paper with fruit “sketches” I decided to turn it into a reference chart

 

 

simply-citrus

 

I uploaded it to PicMonkey

 

citrus-1

 

 

And added text,  names, descriptions and uses

 

citrus-print

 

 

 

 

The chart is available for purchase as a print for $13 here

    I love your citrus sampler watercolor Jenna! I’ve been hoping to find some Blood Oranges at the grocery store, no such luck, but the Cara Cara oranges have been pretty darn tasty! Happy painting and selling to you 🙂
