I love summer when the berries and cherries are ripe for picking!
We had such a wet Spring that I had the best crop of blueberries in my yard! Of course I had to paint them with my new set of Rembrandt watercolor paints! 🙂
I made a light pencil sketch first and then painted wet into wet. I added sketchy details with a micron black pen after the watercolor had dried. It is more abstract than realistic but I like it.
Pie cherries were ripe at the lake last weekend in the neighbor’s yard – these are sour cherries – not good for eating off the tree but delish for pies, that is if the Robins don’t eat them first!
I picked a few to paint in my art journal:
I love those bright reds, don’t you?!
It was super fun to experiment in different painting styles.
Do you have a favorite summer fruit? I hope you share it with me!
Happy Summer! Cheers! 🙂

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of my watercolor paintings I did recently in my art journal.
My cherry tomatoes are ripe for picking – they are my “red” subject:
They taste as sweet as candy! 🙂
And here are my “blue” subjects – blueberries and bellflowers:
I started with a pencil sketch first before painting in watercolor:
I enjoyed painting these subjects outside this last weekend in the cooler weather.
Wishing you a happy day filled with a rainbow of color! 🙂
