Draw & Paint Culinary Herbs - Lesson 6 Basil


Draw & Paint Culinary Herbs - Lesson 6 Basil

We used a flat, heavy application of watercolor as a base layer, then used colored pencils on top. It's slow going, but allows for a lot of shading and detail.

I like the rich green of the leaves. Basil is one of my favorite herbs to eat and cook with. We grow it, too, so I should go pick some and paint it, shouldn't I? (I like this series of paintings.)
