It is the most precious moment to see my editorial illustration in a book. This new book – A Watercolour A Day that was written by Oscar Asensio was published by PromoPress just a few days ago. It has 365 helpful tips on watercolor technique and hundreds of paintings by famous artists who excelled in this medium. I am very happy to be invited to participate in this publication. The editors chose my artwork Spring In The Mountains as an example of watercolor dry-on-dry textured painting.A Watercolour A Day book with Irina Sztukowski painting and editorial illustration

I am holding right now my own paperback copy that publishing agency just sent me. It is a precious gift of colors, techniques, beautiful artworks examples. I love the idea that author and editors explored not only diverse approaches, but as well they invited artists from all over the world to participate in this publication.

It makes this book so universally understandable, and lovely to read. The paintings are amazing. Love every page of this, and hope that more books like that will see public that certainly appreciates the story, easy presentation of a complex subject.

Watercolour Raspberry Blueberry Redcurrant Pie

Today I was painting food illustration for my client – delicious pie, Raspberry Blueberry Redcurrant. Oh, it was hard not to think about tea or coffee while I was painting. As food illustration of pie, its ingredients, was quite repetitious, I first painted a small piece, a slice to show my clients if that what they had in mind: the values, the sizes of the berries, the crust:

After client approved my watercolor slice of pie, I started fearlessly painting berry after berry a whole deliciousness in watercolour using mostly red, blue, and ochre hues as main color palette.

The clients were satisfied, and I was happy that my watercolor painting of this delicious food pretty soon will be appearing on food labels of a product.

 

Interior Decor Ideas – Art For Home And Office

Summer is in its bloom and it seems that whole America is on the move; either for holidays, or for better place to live. Everywhere I drive these days I see the signs Open House, OPEN house, OPEN HOUSE! And with open house there are few great ideas coming to one’s mind about interior decor.¬†

Above, a simple office with no window is transformed into a welcoming bright creation space with the Summer Garden,  my painting In The Garden

The living room decorative interior has organic touch with these Cherry Blossom branches with the deep sunrise on the back:

Incredibly well done to fit the warm environment is a triptych of an abstract work of mine in beige. It is provided by one of my partners Pictorem and has free shipping on most of the art pieces from my gallery:

Another idea for home interior decor in warm tones is Abstract Map Of The World, and Abstract Forest. The living rooms with these artworks are truly coming to life with those art pieces on the walls:

And it will be not fair to omit the realistic pieces for bedroom interior decor. The fresh, impressionistic painting Vintage Storm adds some peaceful drama with its organic natural brush strokes vs geometrical contemporary lines of the room decor (though I personally would change the frame to a black one with white mat, if I could, just my advice) :

Another great marriage of Classical Art and Nowadays Interior is this piece, The Tulip Garden. This painting I made after traveling to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. They have vintage Holland style Tulip Garden set up each spring next to a real windmill from Holland that was given to the city:

Kids’ corner will come more vivid and bright with the Rainbow World Map. It is also quite educational for children to see the whole wide world in front of them and dream of the future travels, languages, new good friends, the oneness of us all. The learning process doesn’t have to be necessarily “framed” but it certainly can be COLORFUL ūüôā

Another incredible possibility of home interior decor with watercolor paintings is to spread the artwork on wall from side to side in the form of a decal. Only one partner of mine is offering so far this kind of service, and I am so glad they do.

And the last but not least a beautiful Collection Of Butterflies in watercolor for the home office interior decor. No butterflies were hurt in the process:

A Little Bit of Nostalgia – Daffodil Paintings

book, botanical, coloring book, daffodil, floral, flower, original watercolor paintings, park, Still Life, Watercolor, yellow

Every time I see daffodils they remind me a little suns that shine from inside. They also remind me of my grandma who grew daffodils in our summer house. Each summer she would bring huge bouquet of daffodils to the city and share with our neighbors. In our beautiful, 300 year old city where grass or trees are only in the parks; those tiny flowers were the gifts from beyond. The smell was astonishing. I can remember it when writing this right now. Very good memories! 

Since then I’ve painted daffodils¬†many times; and, I believe I progressed quite a bit in painting manner and technique:

And recently, several daffodils from miniature to a full size ones were included in my new Coloring Book – Botanical Flowers , Volume I:
