Painting watercolor seeds illustrations for this project was heck of a work, but still a very enjoyable one for me.
I researched the nature of the seeds with pretty much microscopical scientific approach. Then I painted a few seeds separately on a very large scale to understand the structure of these foods. Piling up the seeds together was just a matter of time. The key there was to make sure that the seeds were looking presentable as separate as well as together, completing a realistic still life painted with watercolor medium.
The result was these two deliciously looking cookies packages that are now in the stores in Europe for customers to enjoy:
It is so wonderful to see the product with my watercolor illustrations going live!
