To The Roots: A Watercolor Still-Life Of Beets
Step 9: Finishing Off A Watercolor Still-Life
For touchups, switch to the no. 6 rigger, then add Quinacridone Gold into the wispy bits. Use the dark green mix to add edges to the leaves, and to paint in some of the leaves’ veiny details. You can also use the large no. 20 brush to add a mixture of Olive Green and Indigo for the edges of the darkest shadows on the leaves, or more Burnt Umber for the white beet’s tail.
Once you’re satisfied with the results, mix up Permanent Mauve mixed with Alizarin Crimson, then use a bamboo brush to sign your painting. With that, you’re done with this watercolor still-life! Hope you had fun.
