Beginner Level

Williams Pear

Pears are such great subjects for painting both texture and form. This class is ideal for those totally new to painting or watercolours, and for the more experienced it’s the perfect introduction to my wet-on-dry method. Enjoy!

Took a little break from loose painting and tried my hand at realism with annamasonart free pear class. Squeee! I can’t believe I painted this! I will definitely be exploring realism further. #annamasonpear #watercolorbeginner #watercolorpractice #realisticwatercolor ...

My growing Anna Mason collection of watercolour painting. She is such an inspiration to me. I absolutely love her paintings. I think realism might be my thing 🥰. Birds, bees and flowers 💕. I hope I can inspire people to pick up a paintbrush too 🌞

Thank you annamasonart

My first full tutorial by Anna Mason. I absolutely love her work. Nature and art are my two passions. I'm fairly happy with my pear. I need to work on getting crisp edges to make it look more real.

I highly recommend this free tutorial from Anna Mason. Thank you😍

Loved this tutorial by annamasonart. I’ve never been able to create a realistic fruit and this tutorial was so simple! So pleased with how it’s turned out! 🙃

Day 5 of being nominated by lisabp_artmoments to post artwork for 5 days without explanation and nominate an artist each day. Today I nominate paintingfrankly . The purpose is to spread optimism, passion and bring attention to the artist. #communityovercompetition

I know there's not supposed to be any explanation, but... I signed up for Anna Mason's beginner class in the beginning of July because I think her work is absolutely stunning. I've had the outline ready to go since then, but didn't feel up to starting this until last night, and I'm so glad I did it.

Another attempt of realistic watercolor painting feat. WILLIAMS PEAR 😊 but looks like avocado as well 😂 Should have done it on a lighter version and more fine details. Anyway, still happy with the outcome ❤ It's always the joy of doing it that matters. .

Şöyle tatlı, sulu bir armut yiyemedim adlı çalışma..
Şaka değil, bu sene gerçekten yediğimiz meyvelerin tadı yok. Ağzımızın tadı bozuldu ama suçlu Covid-19 değil. Ham meyvayı kopardılar dalından, beni ayırdılar Akça armudumdan 😒

It’s beginning to feel like fall. I tried a more detailed type of painting lesson. Not sure it’s my style to be so precise, but glad I tried. 🍐 ...
