Realistic Copic coloring fruit seemed like good inspiration…and it did lead to cravings for pears! Mmmmm good!
These Avery Elle stamps in the project are no longer available but see the more recent fruit stamps…and if these too are gone, just search for fruits! Companies seem to always be coming out with lots of fruit.
Each fruit in my photo references had a little bit of highlight (not whites) around the edges – that’s “bounced light” shining on it from the table/wall etc. It’s a subtle thing that helps people looking at your art think you’re truly a coloring guru!
The pear was one of my favorites; I love that the colors go from yellows to pinks to oranges to greens!
The water drops on the pear surprised even me – yeep! Don’t you love when something like this happens?
Cherries are just like any round objects we color…they just need shadows and little highlights!
Last but not least, the lemon! The pores on lemons were a surprise to me; if I had been asked before this realistic Copic coloring exercise to describe the look of a lemon, I wouldn’t have said it has pores!A note about this stamp set – the sentiments in the set generally fit inside most of the fruits. I left them all outside, so my coloring would show. After that kind of work you don’t want to hid it!
