This is Page #8 of “10 Russian Salads” mini-book that I’ve created this month just right before Christmas. I placed many editorial illustrations in it. I’ve painted watercolor illustrations, and then organized them one page at the time adding a brief description of each salad. 

Every day before Christmas, as a gift to my followers, I am posting one page of this book (from p.10 to p.1).

If you wish to add some creativity of a chef to your table, please feel free to use the recipes from this book of mine. 

Enjoy!

The book 10 Russian Salads Recipes For A Creative Chef is written by Irina Sztukowski in unusual to a recipe book presentation. It is a collection of her Family recipes, a visual guide that allows readers to use their imagination. There are no particular measurements in comparison to a common recipe book. Person can follow the guidelines, but make the salads to the taste; e.g. add more oil, reduce the mayo, or substitute sour cream with any other sauce. Use salt! Don’t use salt! Enhance with favorite veggies. Spice it up!

This is Page #9 of my new mini-book that I’ve published lately. I used my knowledge of two different programs, a Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, and it was fun creating. But first, I had to paint those editorial illustrations with watercolors, and after that I organized them one page at the time adding a brief description of each salad. 

Every day before Christmas, as a gift to my followers, I am posting one page of this book (from p.10 to p.1).

If you want to add your creativity to the Holiday table, please feel free to use the recipes from this book. 

Enjoy!

This week I’ve completed three paintings with farm animals. 

The inspiration came from visiting one nice farm next to Columbia River in the State Of Washington. I enjoyed a stay at the ranch house with those cute curios animals that the owner keeps as pets.

A curious goat:

Two sweet female goats that loved the petting so much that they would come to the fence right away when they saw me:

And I couldn’t not to paint a gorgeous horse that was grazing at the pasture:

Busy Berry Season & Digital Bugs

I got overwhelmed with a new style these days. I am playing with digital art images in Adobe Illustrator. My digital art so far looks pretty much as my watercolors. And of course, the first subjects that I was playing with, were berries.

I first made digital Strawberries:
Then I created Raspberries:
And then, I thought about exotic berry that is called Acerola:
It was fun to add digital colors into my new creations. 
They do look like my watercolors that I’d paint by hand thought.

 And, in reality, there is no digital art ever existed that would be without an artist’s creative touch. 

My other super digital art started for example with drawing (by hand of course) funny looking bugs. Then I applied a few filters in Adobe Illustrator, and filled with digital color. 

Here is the example:

These cute bugs are just asking to jump into some children book.

San Francisco Bay Area Watercolor Painting

Editorial watercolour landscape artist illustrator
Yesterday, when I painted this sketch of San Francisco Bay shore from Martinez point of view to Benicia, CA; I was thinking that I was very lucky to paint this area el Plein-Air style so many times. 

Plein-Air painting does not allow to sit and paint too long. An artist has to be fast and free with the brush strokes. It teaches to find main point and to “forget” some details.

In this sketch I achieved all el Plein-Air points: spontaneous approach, fresh color theme, and free outlines.

Watercolor Animals – Editorial Illustrations Types

Watercolour Artist Illustrator Mare and Foal at sunrise

What is exactly an editorial illustration? Historically, this kind of work came from vintage magazines and at the beginning was pretty much for advertising, for social and political satire, or funny cartoons. Nowadays, when the printed and online media expanded dramatically, editorial illustration as well extended way beyond the world of politics or simple cartoons. Online or paper newspapers and magazines post & print illustrations together with their articles to highlight a conceptual element to engage their readers. 

In my example above, the editorial illustration of two horses, mare and foal, can represent an article in either Farmers Market booklet, accompany text of natural history magazine, or be a good editorial addition to an article on motherhood and raising children in parenting newspaper. 

Next example can serve as an editorial illustration for children’s periodicals or book for kids. This cute mouse is caught in action preparing for a long winter, building a nest; or hiding its home from the wild cats:

And the full realistic paintings of two Chameleons, one just a baby and another is quite sneaky an clever one, they tell their stories as well; and, certainly, would look amazing next to an article about behavior of these amazing cold-blooded reptiles:

So, to conclude, editorial illustrations of animals can certainly touch the hearts of different media readers, enhancing the text and providing educational input and humor.
