Chestnut Watercolour For Packaging

Realistic Watercolour illustration of a chestnut for food packaging design artist Irina Sztukowski

Painting this realistic watercolor illustration of the chestnut involved a lot of research on my side. I was targeting to paint three stages of the nut in watercolour: first, the nut just picked up from the tree in its fuzzy fur coat, second, the shiny gorgeous nut, the image that we are all so familiar, and then, then; third stage would be a shelled nut, with all its delicious glory.

The rule of three, three watercolor stages of nut painted with watercolor in realistic manner, complemented future packaging design that was created by wonderful team of designers at Allink

It was truly interesting work for me as an illustrator as it allowed me to use my favorite medium, the watercolor, in my favorite technique, realism.

It was fun to paint watercolour tomatoes, salad leaves, avocado dip, purple onions and soy paddies; but, the most I loved painting watercolor realistically delicious sesame seeds on the top of the watercolour buns.

Cold vs Hot

I was painting the same lovely model (Morning Rose) on two different quality papers. One rose is painted on Hot Pressed Arches and another on Cold.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Question: Can you guess which is where?!
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
It is quite a challenge to move the paint around the hot pressed paper when you used to the qualities of cold pressed one. The surface of Hot Pressed is so smooth that sometimes you think that paint does not stick to it ( especially when I tried to lift the color with sponge or paper towel to make the background wash look like the background).
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
However, I enjoyed painting petals on both Cold and Hot. Both of them held the moisture quite long (though hot pressed has shorter time and needs wetting the painted area generously)
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Ok, here is the answer: when I was working on Hot Pressed paper, my hand went automatically picking up warmer colors for the rose ( I guess it was philological :).. Yes , yes, the top one is on Hot Pressed and the bottom rose is on Cold Pressed..
