Week 10: It’s a Pear! by Sunnyside

It’s a Pear! by Sunnyside, watercolor on paper, February 20, 2022

First Watercolor Tutorial

Free tutorial by Anna Mason.

  • I followed pretty closely, except I drew free hand, not with outline.
  • This lesson was LOTS of fun….although she moves too fast and uses brushes that were not on the materials list.
  • Taking a proper photograph is not easy – must learn.
  • The original really doesn’t look quite so rough as this photo, although I did mutilate the paper with too much water and too many attempts to erase drawing errors.
  • Conclusion: I will definitely try more beginner tutorials from Anna Mason’s online school.

Thanks for Visiting 🙂

  3. Very nice! The fact that you turned the stem of the pear a little adds dynamism to the picture.

  5. It looks great, even with the mutilated paper! I have been doing Watercolor for several years, and still don’t how to keep the paper from being mutilated by the end. I don’t think it is possible.

    1. Good to know, brainchild. I am working with very thick, smooth paper (like several layers of tagboard put together), so there was only a little buckling, but the surface of the paper sure became rough and untidy quickly. Thanks for visiting – and all tips are welcome! 🙂
