Artichoke Watercolour Painting

This is a watercolour study of an artichoke.  I am practicing painting vegetables for my latest SBA assignment. I still need to create more contrast between light and dark values.  Though it is hard to do this without creating hard edges.  I am going to work on this one a little more and also try out some other veggies like an eggplant and acorn squash. I really hope to show a nice wide range of values on my finished assignment.


  1. Beautiful painting! Artichokes are the best. (And I love the font and color samples you included too -great design for this.)

    1. Thanks Holly, yes I love artichokes...many more to paint now!

  5. This is absolutely beautiful! I love that you use nature to inspire your art. I'm a long time nature lover and the colors you use really does it justice.
