    Royal Orange Update II (3 paintings)

    The fruit is imaginary one, no reference.

    Believe me or not, except for the light and the shadow in the background, this was made with watercolours only (two layers, no dry setting and use of metallic on the fruit). The blending knife and eraser was also used (soft and wet at appropriate settings here and there).
    The procedure, however, by trial and errors even understanding the various setting effects, doesn't fit high speed painting though ....

    The second example is mainly based on the roller, as for the background, and on the paint tube, as for the orange itself. Once again use of metallic, airbrush for highlighting and shading, a little watercolour on the shadoms and, as usual, some blender knife and eraser.

    I hope You'll find it interesting anyway ...

    NEW IMAGINARY ORANGE RENDERING TEST.
    ADDED A NEW 2 LAYER WATERCOLOUR ON CHALK EXPERIMENT.

    Cesare, The colors are vibrant and beautiful. Nice experiment, and indeed interesting.

    Maybe I will eventually discover there are special sticker brushes for any of these textures too, dear Sandra ...
    Thank You!

    Its always interesting to your experiments, Caesar! Both are great, though I think I like the first one best.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    These are beautifully done. The rendering of the skin suggests the texture perhaps better than any oranges I have seen. The color is fantastic. Well done.

    Thank You, dear Scott and Albert.
    Anyway some day I'll have to put a still life composition in front of me to get a reference so as not to make the effort to rely on my imagination and memory only ....

    Very nice experiments and the paintings as well. I like how you use different tools to create the skin textures.

    Thank You, dear Pai!
    As I said, it's likely that similar textur effects may be created in dozens of alternative ways now with AR3. There are new grains, brushes of various types among the stickers ... It would take a century to test all their combinations ...

    Dear Evart, right choice! One of the best fruit to take C vitamin against flues! Thank You!
