Have you ever wanted to know how to paint a raspberry in a way that captures its unique looking texture?
If you’ve ever tried to paint a raspberry and it hasn’t turned out looking as realistic or 3D as you’d hoped, it’s because there’s something of a knack when it comes to how to paint a good raspberry.
They have a subtle translucency and slight fuzz texture to them, and it can be difficult to recreate these effects in a painting. Often, a raspberry painting will end up looking too opaque or flat.
Their many little sections can also make them a daunting subject to even try to paint.
But creating a realistic raspberry painting needn’t be a challenge if you follow the steps I share with you in this mini class.
Once you know how to paint a raspberry in watercolor, your results will have your mouth watering.
As you’ll see, working in layers is key. And keeping those initial layers super watery will give your watercolor raspberry that late-summer glow.
(You’ll also see that I discovered a new talent if you watch to the end!)
I really hope you’ve found this mini class helpful and that now you know how to paint a raspberry, you’ll have a go at painting your own. When you use the technique I’ve shown you here, you’ll find that it’s an enjoyable and meditative process.
And I’m pretty sure your appreciation for raspberries will go to new levels.
