Fruit And Colors

         One of my Favorite subjects to Paint is Fruit. After a couple of times figuring out what will be my next post after almost three years, I decided to take risks on painting still lifes combining several subjects using water color and oil pastels.

           This is my second time using an Oil Pastel as a medium and I can say that its a bit difficult to use, because of its solid and being blot when I tried to draw something on a paper using it. Notice how my oil pastel painting in my last post having a smudgy effect.

                My subject for the oil pastel are tropical fruits composed of passion fruits, a guava, pineapples and bananas. I was going to eat the fruits when I realize, why not make a still life combining the fruits, because I just remembered I had a post  still lifes of fruit only they’re a single subject.

       Watercolor is a water- soluble pigment and a medium probably first used by cavemans in paleolithic periods and it also contributes to the renaissance. It is also used in background paintings in cartoons,

         I had a hard time painting using watercolor because it requires still and smooth hand when using the paint brush, and also you have to learn the techniques on creating an effect; dipping your paintbrush into the water after you have picked a color will create a light effect. And also you have to wait to dry the paint before you put another layer.

             I hope you like my works, I am working on my watercolor paintings to be posted on my next blogposts, Thanks.
