Food illustration has become my passion these days. There is something about spending my time looking at food and trying to capture the exact look of the food or drinks. Here are my latest watercolor of food and drinks!
All of my watercolor is on Arches Cold Press 300 g/m
My watercolor paint that I am using is Windsor and Newton tubes and Sennelier L’Aquarelle Watercolor pan set
Pancakes with blueberries and strawberries.
Lemon Meringue Pie
Chocolate Strawberry Cake. I find it hard to get the plate down correctly. I am more comfortable with just the food illustration. I need to continue to work on pushing myself out of my comfort zone with watercoloring the plate.
Chocolate Donuts. I enjoy watercolor that shows a photorealism.
Raccoon in a Lollipop Candy store.
Salmon sashimi, this is a mix of watercolor and macron pen.
Spaghetti with tomatoe sauce. This was a first for me to draw and watercolor a fork. Again this is a mix for watercolor and macron pen.
Sunset Vodka Drink with Strawberry. Another challenge for me is getting the ice cubes and glass rim perfect and less sloppy.
All of my watercolor food illustrations are on my Zazzle shops.
Duke is the love of my life. At a young age of 4 years old, he has many health issues that we need to stay on top of. The past few days have been difficult as we received some news that his liver is not doing so well. He was diagnosed with IBS when he was a puppy. So, unfortunately, he has had to live on steroids to keep the IBS under control. He also has a special diet as well. Next Monday, he will have a liver panel blood test to see how his liver is work. Then we will come up with a plan under the Vet’s guidance on how to keep his liver healthy and strong. Please keep him our thoughts and prayers. This is a very difficult time for us.
For today’s April Landscape Photos A Day Challange, I am to pick colorful landscape photos. Well, my thoughts went to Positano, Italy! My most colorful landscape dreamy photos! Enjoy! April Landscape Photos Challenge
When I was in art school learning about ink drawing, I chose this picture to work on learning about how the strokes where made. Below is my attempt to copying this picture. I saw that proportion is an area that needs work.
This was a great exercise of learning how to draw with ink and drawing. It was not that easy but I am willing to try this again with other master artists.
I received these beautiful white Japanese Quince is a vase once for my wedding anniversary. They were so lovely that I had to take the time and work on capturing their beauty. I used French Kiss Textures for the background. In Photoshop I used the Masking tool to painted out the texture to get some of the flowers but kept some of the painted look.
For today’s Thursday Doors, we take a trip to Venice, Italy. Doors are so symbolic, open a door to a future, close a door to a past. Sometimes there is something behind the door that we are hiding. Currently having a door closed to the outside world will protect you from the Coronavirus.
In Venice, Italy, the doors open to a world of historic beauty. Enjoy these doors from Venice and let your imagination run with what is behind these doors.
Earth Day is an annual celebration of an environmental movement. Recently, I have been hearing how the Pandemic has really gone to reducing pollution since people are staying indoors. With next to little to no use of cars, trains, airplanes, factories, pollution has shown signs of reducing. Even though this not a feasible way to help protect the environment, this might help Environmentalist to create a plan for the future on our fight to protect Mother Earth.
If you haven’t seen Moving Art on Netflix, here is a trailer of season 2 that will captivate you! There are 3 seasons of this beautiful cinematography with outstanding music. A great TV show to watch on Earth Day!
I have many different flowers that I have photographed and I thought it would be fun to make some magnets that match my flowers to the states! Currently here are the ones that I have in my Zazzle shop!
My Mother’s Cavalier, Princess Fiona, loves her Mommy very much. Little Princess Fiona has been sick but has recovered very well from a long illness. It was my own Mother’s love and devotion to Princess Fiona that has kept Princess Fiona going. I know that if Princess Fiona could talk, she would be saying these special words to my Mother. This can be personalized!
