Watercolor Food Illustration

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

Strawberrychoccake

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.

Salmon sashimi, this is a mix of watercolor and macron pen.

Spaghetti

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.

Orange Vokha drink

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.

Watercolor Show And Tell

Here are my latest watercolor and illustrations!

For a Beach challenge I had to watercolor a pool float! So I wanted to create some thing that was a little bit more exciting than just a pool floats without a background. So I did this fun water pattern with my float.
This is for a flower watercolor challenge, dahlias. I decide to do painterly Dahlias.
For another flower art challenge, this is a realistic Peony to the best of my ability!
For the beach challenge, I had to watercolor a sun hat. So this gave me a great opportunity to practice my female profile illustrations.
Again for the beach challenge, I had to watercolor a fish. So I decided to work on my watercolor background and draw my beta fish in ink.
This was for a doodle wash challenge, I had to create a raspberry tart. This was a lot of fun to work on as I love to illustrate food.

Ice Coffee in mason jar

Ice Latte

All of my watercolor’s were done with three brands of watercolor.

1. Windsor and Newton

2. Reeves

3. Holbein

I only used two watercolor brushes, Silver Brush Black Velvet sizes 6 and 4.

The paper that I only use is Arches cold pressed rough.

I love taking pictures of flowers that has been always as a photographer my favorite thing to do. But with watercolor, I find that the food illustration seems to fascinate me!

Watercolor Easter Bunny During Coronavirus

The new reality for at least right now. The importance of wearing a facemask so the Coronavirus doesn’t spread. Years from now, when I look back at my art work, I really hope that this was just a once in a lifetime event. I guess we will see how this plays out. Will I be painting a Santa with a face-mask too? Time will tell.

Happy Easter!

“Simplicity” Of The Days

The simplicity of taking a walk and watching the Mallard Ducks swimming with no care in the world.

How about just watching the sunlight highlighting the fence and greenery.  Just sitting there and watching the play of light, the peacefulness.IMG_E7810

Just spending the time to watercolor and take pictures of my art. The simplicity of finding cupcakes photos and watercoloring them.  Enjoying the simplicity of those activities.
