Watercolor Food Illustrations of Bean Patty Burgers by the artist and illustrator Irina Sztukowski
I’ve painted this watercolor food illustration for my client. The patties of these delicious burgers are made from Black Bean and Red Beans. I had to make sure that the texture of the patties were shown differently and be diverse from a regular beef burger.

Food watercolor vegetables realistic watercolour
I am glad to announce that new products of YoU brand by Migros company with my watercolor illustrations of veggies, seeds, and bowls are now on the shelves of the stores of European supermarkets. It is so great to see a hard work looking so good and bright on the colorful labels and packaging. When I was painting the food illustration such carrots, corn, leaves of kale and beans I had to follow customers request to make them in style between realistic to minimalistic. However, for the bowl of food I was given a very clear photographs with ingredients such grains, beans, cut vegetables and I had to paint it in more realistic style in order to add a depth and interest to the painting. I was glad I could use my classical education and paint those food illustration in watercolor with diverse approach. The job is certainly well done.

watercolor watercolour by Irina Sztukowski
It is easy to be creative when you have pencil, brush, and watercolor right at your side. It was even easier for me after I visited our local farmers market and fresh idea popped into my head as fresh as their vegetables and fruits there.

I decided to imply my artist’s skills into editorial illustration design; and, I created this cute alphabet made of healthy and delicious veggies.

All of them, by the way are my favorite to eat.

First I’ve created three letters:
Peppery A
Beet – ery B
and Super Cute Bell Pepper – C:

The rest of the letters were just popping and popping for those  watercolor editorial illustrations as if they were waiting for me on the shelves of Farmers Market booths.

Having three very affordable farmers markets nearby, I created this sign that is quite important these days to support the local communities:

Then, one customer of mine asked me to create LOVE TO EAT sign for her kitchen decor. She ordered it on my illustrator website Irina Sztukowski Editorial Illustrations

And I was delighted to create another editorial illustration, Farmers Market, made of sweet radishes, cucumbers, beans, and celery 🙂

For vegan foods lovers, I’ve created a sign:

Basically, I’ve created whole alphabet and made it  possible for customers to order their own signs whatever they feel would look great at their Farmers Market booth, newspaper or magazine articles, cafe or restaurant decor; or, even in the kitchen interior:

All those signs and a cute alphabet for editorial illustrations are in my Food Illustrations Gallery.

What Color Are The Vitamins?!

My Jam, Relish, and Marmalade Gallery is growing. Several new paintings and designs were born in the last month. And with enough water and plenty of colors on my palette, it keeps growing as if I opened a “Farmers Market” in my studio. 

I’ve looked at my previous and new paintings of vegetables, berries and fruits and combined them into a color themes.
The above one calls for some cool colors. This group is for Blue and Black Vitamins, and it contains blueberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, and grape paintings.

The next bunch is so so red. The mixture of cranberries, raspberries, redcurrant, strawberries and even rhubarb would water any mouth:

Unusual combination of berries, fruit, veggies, and even herbs is in my Green collection. Gooseberries, cucumbers, green apple and mint leaves are here in Green Vitamins collage:

All shades of yellow and orange are in this Citrus Quartet, a Vitamin C in all its glory. It contains ruby red grapefruit, oranges, and lemons:

And not so well coming together in one dish, but oh so well came together by color into a collection of Purple fruits, berries, and vegetables.
It contains plums, eggplant, purple onion, and freshly picked blackberries that certainly have a purple tint to them:

It was fun to combine so many different creation of mine into a colored vitamins series.
Thanks to my Jam Labels project, which allowed me to generate so many different designs!

Paint Tomatoes – Peel Potatoes

cherry tomatoes, garden, green, red, summer, tomato, tomato painting, vegetables


How to survive in this busy life; how to manage the day between work and house chores ? I was thinking about this the other day. Especially it is becoming obvious when person is working from home studio and has access to the kitchen 24/7. No I am not talking about overeating (this is the subject of some other blog) I am talking about dividing the house work and the Artist job in a good balanced way. I am still learning. I’ve recently became a full time Artist and a full time Fine Art student. Yes, being an artist practically all my life (including a childhood of course) I’ve given a tremendous opportunity to receive an Art degree here in America (just for myself! not for Mom, not for Society, just for me).. I just need to grab this opportunity from the right end and keep up with the busy schedule.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
The painting above is my attempt to paint our garden Cherry Tomatoes while cooking potatoes in the kitchen. Literally! I believe that the painting is usually caring what the artist thinks: I was really hungry painting those cuties. Tomatoes are always inspiring me by their bright color and almost perfect forms.
