Draw with me: fly agaric

in #art2 years ago


Today I decided to draw mushrooms... and to made a step by step lesson with my markers. I don’t know why I chose fly agarics ... Apparently because they are beautiful ... though poisonous))) Enjoy the process 😉

I use photos from Pinterest and do a composition. Fly agarics + snails)))

Then I start with warm WG and cold NG markers. On the left are light cold tones, on the right are warm and dark.

Then I add light yellow to the stipes. And for snails I use the same colors, but in the shadow I add PG markers.


For a pileus I use red shades. On the left is light, on the right is a shadow. Add a little red under the hat of the top fly


In the grass are yellow leaves. The top of the sheet is light, the bottom is dark.

We draw grass in the same way: on the left and on the top it is light, on the right - it is dark.


Under the top of the fly agaric hat I add warm gray plates. I darken I the right side of the legs and the shadow under the hats and the remains of velum.

With a white gel pen I draw glare on the blades of grass and small dots on the fly agaric.


All used markers can be viewed here:


If you draw with me, I will be glad! Teg me 😉!

All my paintings can be bought for sbd/steem

Thank you for watching!


P.S. It is hard to write in English, because my native language is Russian. But I'm learning. If you notice serious errors in the text that interfere with the correct perception, please let me know about them.

Thank you for showing us how you did this - mine wouldn't look anything like this 😄


I am always amazed to see art in the making. I can't even tell which end of the marker marks ;-)

I don't only love eating mushroom, but I adore your artwork and how much effort you put into this blog. Awesome!


I grow mushrooms as a hobby/business.

Namaste, JaiChai

You made this look so easy! I love the drawing and I will definitely be back to see more of what you do! I can't wait to show my daughter your post.

That's really cool, and your English is grand

Wow that is pretty. It makes me think of s children’s book illustration!

Your drawing is beautifully delicate and the colour added with the markers and gel pen is stunning. All so well presented too. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎
