I am painting watercolor gooseberries for one of my clients packaging designs.
This is a sweet collage completed with two of my favorite things and an addition of a beautiful porcelain bowl & gentle Daisy Flower.
I painted Caramel and chocolate for two packaging designs for one of my corporate clients, and the sugar bowl was painted for another customer. This still life painting combines my work on three different packaging designs for two International clients’ commissions from two different countries. So, the answer to the question above: Is Watercolor Sweet? the answer is: Oh Yeah!! And it also unites nations making the watercolours an international medium, which brings joy!
I have the proof 🙂

It was such a pleasure to paint those delicious fruit and berries for my client G’s Gourmet Jams.
I was able to use my favorite technique here, realistic approach in watercolor. This technique even though takes a lot of time to accomplish a painting, but it is surely rewarding. Learning from Old Masters of Dutch Still Life, I discovered the truth about my favorite medium, watercolour. The shadow behind the painted fruit and berries illustration allows 3D effect; and, the vivid colors that I used when painting those food illustrations are bringing the artworks to life. Luckily at the time I was painting those scrumptious goodies, I had most of the “models” right next to me. The strawberries and raspberries were from the local Farmers Market. The apricots, blackberries, apples, and blueberries came from my own garden.
And by the time I was ready to paint plums, my friendly neighbor brought a bunch of plums to me. When I cut the plum in half, I’ve noticed a heart shape; my watercolor brush couldn’t stay still until I’ve completed the watercolor plum. And if you notice, the shape of Strawberry was also resembling a heart shape. This can only conclude one very important thing, I do paint with love to watercolor and create food illustrations carefully observing Mother Nature allowing for the beauty of it to come on the paper.
Here are a few pictures of the products, packaging designs and food labels that show who these food illustrations in watercolor look on jams of my client’s production line:
