The one thing as an artist I’ve always wanted to do is be able to draw my beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. My goal for the year 2021 is to be able to draw them consistently and feel comfortable coloring them in the fun iPad drawing app Procreate. I’ve been taking classes on the website Udemy and Skill Share to learn more about cartoon drawing and painting techniques. Below I would like to show you some of my creations thus far.
Once I start feeling comfortable with my Cavalier King Charles drawings I will branch out to other dogs. I’m looking forward to this year as I hope to really grow with experience using Procreate and cartoon drawing. I am going to take a break from Watercolor for the time being to see how far I can go with this new venture.
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.
