    What you'll learn
    Mixing and Creating Colors: The magic of Ekaterina's technique lies in how she layers primary colors to achieve richly colored berries that are just dripping with maximum realism. 

    Wood Grain: You will use all 6 colors to create the smooth wooden bowl and the wooden table it sits upon. Ekaterina simplifies the process of achieving natural wood grains. You won't believe how easy it is!  

    Blurred Vignette Background: This background method really draws all the attention to your delicious looking bowl of berries and makes you want to just reach out and take a bite!

Bursting With Berries

Wonderful! I wasn't sure I could do this at all, but the instructions were clear so I went for it... enjoyed the process and learned a lot about what one could accomplish with just six pencils. Simply a great tutorial.

Bursting with Berries: In-Depth Tutorial

A lovely kit but I don't think this is a beginners piece. I found I had to keep reading the instructions and this made it quite slow and intensive whereas I like to have more photos with the layering technique shown like the orange, ribbon and lace kit. I'm still doing it and I think I will learn some good techniques from it though with some practice. Regards Wendy

Loved the instruction. It was clear and concise and certainly was full of information I hadn’t known before. I am not a still life artist but I certainly enjoyed this course! Thank you.

Excellent Tutorial

An excellent, well-written tutorial. Learning how to use a limited number of pencils to make all the color needed for the piece was most enjoyable. Thanks to Ekaterina for sharing her talent.
