SUPER Easy Citrus Watercolor Tutorial

To do this watercolor, you'll need a pencil, a sheet of watercolor paper, one or two watercolor brushes (round brushes), a pan of watercolor paints or a palette with watercolor paint, some water, and maybe a paper towel.

1. Draw circles of various sizes all over the page. Have some even going off the page, if possible! Inside the circles, add 6-8 pie shapes, leaving space between each one as well as space between them and the outside circle.

2. Next, draw leaves throughout your paper. I used some simple, elongated football shapes.

3. Using your watercolors, start painting small straight lines going out from the center of the fruits. Leave some white space to make it look like shiny highlights.

*Pay attention to what colors you use for each size- for example, you wouldn't want a lemon that was larger than a grapefruit!

4. Using some blues and greens, use a wet-on-wet technique to fill in the leaves. (just means to paint the leaves with water before adding paint)

And you're done! Treat yourself to a mimosa or a slice of key lime pie.
