Creating the Appearance of Texture
What you need:Goldfaber Aqua watercolour pencil
Including various textures in a still life not only creates more visual interest, it also makes your subject more entertaining to draw because you can use a different technique for each texture. Rough textures may require dry, short, choppy, overlapping strokes, while smooth textures typically involve long, even strokes and soft blends with a brush and water. One of the best ways to practice drawing different textures is to set up a still life composed of objects that have a variety of surfaces: smooth glass, silky ribbon, shiny metal, or a rough woven basket are all possibilities.
In this clever setup, the uneven skin of the ripe strawberries contrasts with the smooth surface of the china plate and the delicate lace doily, creating a unique and beautiful Scene.
