Sorry Nolan I do not see this subject under the acrylic paintings that's why made a new subject.

That is super to hear, this is the one that I was having all the trouble with, when I kept mixing olive green.  Once I figured out the lighting, I was fine.   :thankyou:  I love  :painting:

Painted on acrylic Canson paper with a mixture of acrylic brand paints. Not as easy as it looked from video lesson.  Had problem with paint lifting in spots which was frustrating.
Don't know how to rotate picture.

Great job Teresa. You have a very nice shine on the leaves :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

You can make the reflections on the edges of the berries lighter. That will make them look rounder O0

Really lovely.. In particular I love the greens you have managed to achieve here,,,
Title: Re: How to paint Berries
Post by: zoorekan on December 02, 2020, 09:13:59 PM
My 5th attempt at acrylics alongside my first (right) - difficult to photograph paintings I think! harder than painting them...

My greens may appear a bit off...(muted) as I don't have a sap green and was using mainly Chromium Green with occasional Ultramarine Cad yellow mixes or azo glazes...

Overall I'm pleased with the result.. great tutorial again and great exercise. I tried to take the berries more in a blueberry direction to remind me to make muffins!!!  ;D

Thanks Nolan!

you have done a fabulous job on the berries. They look realistic, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I do find the reflections on the cherries a bit hard though - if you soften their edges or make them smaller, they will look more natural O0
