In the last few days I've painted up some radishes and also my favorite stone fruit, nectarines. Yes peaches are juicy and yummy too but I don't like their fuzziness. Nectarines are peaches without the peach fuzz. Awesome! I under painted it all with both my yellows, new gamboge and pure yellow then used transparent orange, permanent red, quin pink and carbazole violet to get the skin color. The cut flesh was yellow ochre and pure yellow with a little new gamboge underpainting. Shadows done used Payne's grey. Oh, and the pit is burnt umber, yellow ochre, buff titanium and a little neutral tint for darkening. I really love how it turned out. I'm finally getting the hang of watercolors and letting the water work for me.
Stay tuned, I'm going to be writing a post in the near future about my paint palette, all my recommendations and stuff to make watercolor painting easier.
Talk soon, K?
