Creating a Watermelon

Step by step guide

Step 1

After getting all of your kit together, don’t forget to check out the ‘What You Need’ tab above. Start by sketching a pizza-shaped slice on watercolour paper. Then prepare your palette; red, yellow, crimson, green and black.

Step 2

Create a light pink wash with a wide brush and work from light to dark to fill the watermelon, leaving a small piece at the top. In this space add you watermelon rind using a yellow wash.

Step 3

Build up the body of the watermelon with a darker red wash. Add the final edge of the rind in green, don’t forget to include some seeds and you’re done. Tasty!
