Nuts are often a feature of the holiday season. In my family we always had a bowl of them in the living room ready to be cracked and munched on with a cup of tea, or some mulled wine.
But have you ever REALLY looked at a walnut shell? They might not feature an array of different colours, but they are SUPER detailed.
And that makes them pretty challenging to paint.
But their 3D effects are a lot of fun to paint too, so in this tip video I wanted to show you the process I go through to paint a 3D looking walnut.
Hint: get your tonal balance right before you paint all of that detail!
