Paint a Watercolor Star Fruit

Watercolor Passion Fruit Classe

Inside this watercolor course

Welcome to the Tropical Fruit Series!

Learn how to paint various tropical fruits one by one in a series of short courses while improving your watercolor skills.

This is course #8 in the Tropical Series, and we are painting an exotic star fruit in watercolor! Yana also calls it “carambole”.

We’ve prepared 10 courses that are interconnected: during the first 9 courses, we will discover techniques and secrets of painting various fruits step by step.

We will release each course separately, one after another, so you are not overwhelmed with the amount of content.

You can purchase this one course and have fun painting a star fruit, or get a yearly membership and watch all courses of the Series as they are being released!

Following this course series, you will paint 9 single fruits: watermelon, papaya, dragon fruit, passion fruit, star fruit, figs, guava, mango, and durian.

After painting each fruit separately and mastering watercolor techniques, we will release course #10 where you will apply all previous knowledge learned into a masterpiece!

We will compose our own piece and paint all the fruits we’ve been practicing during this tropical fruit series!

At the end of THIS course, you will get a lovely postcard-size painting of Star Fruit (AKA Carambole).

And by the end of this course series, you will have 9 little postcard artworks of different exotic fruits AND a large masterpiece with all the fruits you’ve been practicing!

Your skills will improve gradually while you are having fun painting fruits!
