Velvety Fig

How to paint round velvety figs

Figs are such interesting, not to mention delicious, fruits.

The velvety skin and their bulbous shape is a lot of fun to paint.

But there are many different colours to that skin, as well as lots of texture and markings to capture.

It can make it a daunting subject to try in watercolour.

So in this tip video I wanted to give you an overview of the process I go through to paint the fig and make it as realistic as I can.

Why not try it out this weekend?

 

Or if you’re a member of my online school you can tackle the full painting there.

The tutorial covers the dissected half of the fig too, and as usual covers everything in thorough detail.

I’ve also created a tip video covering the jammy insides of the fig too, so please do have a watch of that when you get a second.

Happy painting!

    Hi: Loved the fig demo! I want to put my house renos aside (I should be so lucky) and get back to my watercolour painting. Thanks, Anna. This was great inspiration for me.

    Oh Anna,
    You are so good at seeing those colours and getting them right.
    I look at that fig and my mind boggles.
    One thing is an oregano leaf….its a long road to that luscious fig!
    Best,
    Ruth

    Hallo Anna! That’s a lovely video, so helpful! My equation is about white paint you use at the end. Which white paint is it that covers the dark surfaces in your video? Thank you
