Painting A Watercolor Still-Life: An Apple And Kiwis
Step 7: Painting The Fuzzy Kiwi Skin
Prep your palette with Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Violet, and Hooker’s Green. With the size 16 round brush, add the Yellow Ochre to the entire dry shape of the whole kiwi for a base coat, and paint the skin of the other kiwi halves with the same color. With the size 7 brush, dab in some pure Hooker’s Green to create the texture of the kiwi skin. Add some of the Perylene Violet and Burnt Umber to enhance the shadows of the kiwi. Use the angular brush to scrub and lift out a little bit of color to create a line to separate the right kiwi half with the whole kiwi fruit in the background.
Leave this complete first layer of the fruits to dry.
