How to paint the juicy inside of a fig in watercolour

How to paint the inside of a juicy fig

WHERE to START?!” I hear you cry.

Yes, in this video I’m going to to show you how I go about painting the beautiful, juicy organised chaos that is the inside of a fig!

I break it down in stages for you here and I hope it’s enough to let you feel you might give it a go.

I promise it’ll be rewarding if you stick with it.

It’ll certainly make your mouth water anyway.

I’d love to hear in the comments below if you’ve ever tried something this complex.

Or better still, I’d love to see the fruits of your labour if you would post them via social media using #AnnaMasonArt.

And don’t forget, if you’d like to try a full, real time step-by-step tutorial video showing you how to paint both the inside and outside of the fig, it’s available now via my online school.

Happy painting!

    Hi Anna:

    Lovely description of how to paint the innards of the fig.

    Might I make the comment that the black titled script is really in the way of watching and concentrating on what you are saying. It is very distracting.

    Also, the script on the black is not very noticeable as it is so much the same colour as the black.

    Perhaps for the next video, someone could help you change this to something not so distracting and more visible.

    Just a thought……

    Thanks for the fig innards. Much appreciated.

    Hi Anne, I’m not sure what black script you’re referring to. Try clicking the black box in the bottom right corner of the video screen and that will remove the YouTube text and show you the video full-screen. Hope that helps! Anna

    Hi Anna! These videos are quite helpful with a complicated subject like the inner fig. The videos show the steps but in a way that helps the process come together as a whole and when I do the step by step somehow it makes it a nice, smooth process. i’m not sure why it works but I love it! I think it’s like reading directions before you begin and we all know how important that can be! 😉 Thanks and off to do my fig!

    Hi Anna:

    I should have called the black lines with typing inside “subtitles.” Even clicking on “youtube”, and the full screen, on my computer I still receive the subtitles.

    I managed to find a place on the screen below the video to get rid of the subtitles and now I can view the video without the disruption of the subtitles overlapping your work.

    Thank you for your kind response.

    I love your work! As soon as my wrist heals from surgery, I plan to enroll online. I do NOT see any subtitles that the previous poster has commented on..?? Video looks great!
