Delicious, delicate and dating back over 8,000 years (wow!), peaches are a popular fruit worldwide. They originate from China, where they’re believed to represent good luck, protection and longevity.
Their fuzzy, velvety skin is a really fun texture to recreate in watercolour, and because peaches have a spherical form, we can create the illusion of lots of depth on our paper.
So in this mini class, I’m going to show you how I painted a pair of 3D, velvety peaches in watercolor.
And I’ll describe how I created the fuzzy visual texture in these lovely velvety peaches.
I hope this mini class has given you the inspiration and confidence to paint your own watercolor peaches.
Once you’ve painted a velvety peach, you might like to watch my mini classes on some other stone fruits with very different visual textures.
Please leave me a comment below if you paint your own velvety peach or if you’ve enjoyed this mini class. I love to hear from you!
