9×7″ Watercolor Painting by Jamie Wilke
I hope this painting makes you think of the warm, sunny days of summer. I love to garden, and I sometimes take a few close-up photos of the fruits and vegetables growing on the plants before I harvest them. I like to see and remember the fruit in all its glory before it’s gone.
In this botanical painting, I wanted to capture how the some of the raspberries were catching the sunlight and others were in shade. I also loved how the raspberry leaves were brought into detail by the sun, and the others looked so dark in the distance. The sun was definitely my inspiration for the painting of this raspberry plant.
