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.

I took a pen and ink drawing class for 3 weeks. This drawing was created with a traditional crow quill pen, Indian ink, and a few wood sticks.
Also, a flat brush was used for the washes on Bristol paper.
Here is the reference photo that I used. My father took this picture on one of his travels.
