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.
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.

Today I want to express my appreciation to an Art Collector who purchased this Purple Ballerinas Silhouettes in Watercolor from Wayfair under my licensing contract. How lovely that people can have this art-piece in their home interior decor now.
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.
