First watercolour assignment

I have just joined a class for water colouring. These are my first ever attempt at water colouring still life. We were given assignments to paint orange, grapes and figs. Now if the above look even remotely anything like the fruits I will be happy. Do they?


  1. yes,they do, I really like the grapes. the difference in thr green color. nice

  2. YES, they do! You've done a marvelous job of letting the paint do it's thing, especially on the orange on the left. As much as I love watercolor, I still try to control them like acrylics half the time and then I end up with mud. This is your FIRST time??? Sigh... you're a natural.


  3. You are going to be a great painter! You are doing so well -better than I did when I tried this!
