How to Paint a Tangerine With Oils Paints – Fruit


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
today we will paint a tangerine with oil paints. We begin by making a brown
mixing sanguine and sepia, with solvent and using the brush
we lay it on the canvas. Like this, with strokes that don´t
need to be even, because then with a rag we even it out. This step of toning the canvas
you don´t need to do it necessarily. I do it because I don´t like
painting on a white surface. Then with a hard bristles brush,
I draw the outline. There is no paint on the brush,
only solvent. And with this we can sketch the shape of the fruit. Very good! Now we mix some more of the brown
using the sepia and some ultramarine blue … and some green. I added those colors because
the brown tended toward the reddish, and that´s not what I wanted.
I wanted it more toward the greenish, for this surface which is where
the tangerine will be. Good! This is the tone I had in mind. It should represent wood, of course. The edge along here will be lighter. Therefore we mix some ochre yellow
with the brown. And we can add others such
as orange or to make it lighter, a little bit of white. I don´t want it too uniform,
and that is why I apply it in this way. The highlight of the tangerine
will be here. I make it with the same bristle brush with solvent,
as the paint of course is still wet. Good! Now let´s do the background. This will be also pretty dark,
but I want it of a different hue. This will tend a little bit more
toward the purple. Of course I am referring, only to a light tint
within the brown, like this. And now we mix the orange
for the tangerine. Before beginning to paint it,
I prepare different hues. Some lighter with more yellow
and some with more red, or even of a wine color. And we begin painting
with these darken ones. I´m not painting an apple,
I known what you were thinking [laughs]. With a light yellow and white
we paint some reflections. And now let´s paint the leaf
with different tonalities of green. By the way normally the palette with
the colors, I don´t have it in this position, I have it on my left hand
on a horizontal table, but today I placed it over here, vertically
on the side of the painting so that you could see, more or less
what I´m doing with the colors. I hope you can see something. I think is working ok, except that some are running down [laughs]. I will not blend and smooth out
the colors, but I will leave them a little bit rough like this, because
I want a more painterly effect. We add shadows and lights to
give more volume! I love painting with oils because
you can keep mixing the colors as you go. It´s ready! If you enjoyed it, please give it
