About the course
Using initial drawings then watercolour this workshop will explore how to paint autumn’s harvest of fruits—making them look realistic using 3D form and colour techniques. From apples to pears and quinces to pomegranates we will paint the whole fruit and halved ones, revealing the structure and pattern of seeds inside, making an interesting composition on the page.
