Painting A Watercolor Still-Life: An Apple And Kiwis
Step 11: A Fruitful Finish
Now it’s time for the final details. With the size 7 brush, mix Burnt Umber with Viridian to create the darker areas of the cast shadows closest to the fruit. Switch to the size 2 synthetic brush and mix Burnt Sienna with Umber to paint the pit of the whole kiwi fruit and the fuzzy texture of the kiwi skin using a stippling brushstroke.
Finally, after your painting is completely dry, use the rubber cement pickup to remove the now dry masking fluid that you applied at the beginning. Clean up these highlights and blend them with the surrounding green. For the last details, mix Burnt Umber and Black together to paint the seeds at the center of the kiwi halves. Once the painting is dry again, you’re done!
