The Steps in Making a Single Watercolor Doughnut

  • Using a pencil, draw the outline of the doughnut by creating two concentric circles – one smaller wavy shape and another one bigger shape outside the previous one. The circles will imitate the doughnut shape and will show where the glaze ends. After that, using a light shade of brown, brush the remaining areas. To make the round shape sharper, darken the edges of the doughnuts, the portions under the glaze, and the outmost part of the circle. One finished, repeat the steps to the inner circle.

  • Work again in the glazed area by painting in a little pink. Now, while the paint is still wet, darken the inner and the outer edge to make a soft effect.

  • Repeat Step 2 but now add one pink layer. After that, paint a shadow to the doughnut. If you think the light is coming from the left, so the shadow must be painted on the right. Don’t forget to leave a little shite space between the beginning of the shadow and the doughnut itself. The area near the doughnut should be darker, while the farther area from it should be lighter. Last but not least about the shadowing, do the inner part too.
