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.

Chocolate Donuts. I enjoy watercolor that shows a photorealism.

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.

Greek Easter Watercolor

Greek Easter is coming up on Sunday, April 19th.  My Greek Easter cards that I sell on my Zazzle and Red Bubble stores.  Mainly my Greek Easter cards featured my photography.  I wanted to take my paintbrush to see if I could watercolor a Greek Easter card!

Greek Easter bread is called Tsoureki. It reminds me of brioche bread with red eggs decorating the center. The red eggs symbol the blood of Christ. The twirl cookies are called Koulourakia. They are like a butter cookie with a hint of vanilla. They go very well with some coffee!

I am especially proud of this watercolor. I am mastering the wet on wet technique in watercolor! The chocolate bunny was not easy but I managed to work on my shadow work.

Both of these watercolors will be up in my Zazzle, Society 6 And Red Bubble shop!
