Cabbage Painting

March 22, 2017


Painting cabbage in watercolor - I have always wanted to teach my students how to paint cabbage. Cabbage is very challenging because it requires knowledge of values. Values are the darks and lights which form the object the artist wishes to paint. If the values on the cabbage are executed properly, the artist will not need to rely on line to define this lovely vegetable. Since this particular watercolor class is called “Loose and Free",  I had the students spray their paper with water first and then paint.  Below is the reaction of one of my students after I gave the instruction to wet the paper first.
