Today, we are going to learn how to Shade in brinjal oil colors.
Step 1 :
We start with drawing the outline of the brinjals and other vegetables. I tried composing in different positions and then selected the one I liked most. For painting, we start with the stalk of brinjal with green colour.
Step 2 :
After the stalk is done using white and green paint, start coloring the background. Color half part of background using black and gray color. This will bring depth to the brinjal.
Step 3 :
Color the body of brinjal using violet, olive green, and little bit of white. Here, observation is the main key. Study the tones and depth and chose shades accordingly.
Step 4 :
After completing the primary brinjal, start painting the other one using violet and peach color. I've also used mauve shade.
Step 5 :
It is time to paint the foreground now. Use grey and yellow ochre shades. Using dull shades in the background helps uplift and focus on the main object. Add white highlights as necessary to complete it.
Step 6 :
Add details if missed out any.
