Summertime is lemonade time!
I definitely had to paint this with the Deep Yellow Kelly Creates Watercolor Ink. The range of yellow hues you can get with this ink is phenomenal. To maintain a brighter ‘orangey’ colour, I added very little water to dilute this ink in my palette.
Painting the lemon slices is super easy. Just start with a thick half circle line. Then paint ‘stripey’ triangles inside, starting at the 2 across the top of the slice. I used my Size 1 Kelly Creates lettering brush and daisy palette on Canson watercolour paper.

The Deep Yellow Ink is in the ‘Warm Set 1″ of Kelly Creates Watercolour Inks
Can’t find my brand of watercolour inks? You can also use this Ecoline set too!
Another option for liquid watercolor inks is the Dr. Ph Martins ‘Hydrus’ Set 1 (there are 3 sets of different colours). And remember you need a palette with wells to use these liquid watercolours.
To practice painting letters freehand, use the heavyweight smooth Kelly Creates Grid Paper pad. (Never practice on blank paper).
