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:

Watercolor Food Illustration – Packaging for Good Night Tea

packaging, Uncategorized, watercolor food illustration, watercolour

The fun process of painting watercolor food illustrations for Packaging is certainly to see the final result of my own creations on the shelves of the stores. Each time I look at this particular Good Night Tea box I remember how I remember painting those purple flowers. Usually, I use professional quality Winsor & Newton watercolour paints. Two stores I get those tubes either Dick Blick or Cheap Joe’s online. And, again, these watercolors or Daniel Smith Watercolors  are my first choice. However, I realized that all the professional watercolors are too good of a quality for those purple impressionistic approach flowers. I needed some opaque colors, something that has less pigment and more whites in it. My eye stopped at a children set that I have for paining (testing) coloring books with,  and that was to my own surprise exactly what I needed in that case. I painted those watercolour flowers for food packaging design project with Artist’s Loft Watercolor Set for Kids from Michael’s Store; and, it worked just great! I am so happy with the results. Yes, sometimes artist has to come out from the comfort zone and do what needs to be done for the watercolor commission project to satisfy the customer! 🙂

Yes, finding artist illustrator for a commission project is not a difficult task for a potential customer. Negotiation of the contract is also quite common and goes quickly. Yet to complete the project and have both party be satisfied is the most difficult part especially when the artist is classically trained. I noticed that sometimes I need to call a Child from within in order to create fresh art pieces.

Editorial Illustrations Vs Illustration Project

book publication, editorial, editorial illustration, horses, publication, Uncategorized, watercolour

Horses_Coloring_Book_Landscapes

Personally, it is much easier for me to create commissioned editorial illustrations in watercolor than participate in this exciting yet quite challenging project: Horses Coloring And Activity Book for All Ages.

Usually, when I work with my clients on editorial illustrations, it is that the projects are put in place, the budgets are established and I get a good rapport with the customer. I complete the requested piece, client is satisfied; and, I am as an artist and illustrator happy.

In the creation of my own book, I draw and redraw, paint and re-paint. I try to decide the best format for my future co-creators. And, I literally overwhelm myself. A great example with this book. If the Flowers books were quite easy to create: I painted flowers, I drew, and I placed them into the book. On another hand, this Horses book is more than just a coloring book, which customers can purchase, color, and place in the frame into a home decor (see example HERE) . The Horse Coloring book is also an Activity book; but, not only for adults. It is also going to be created for children as well. So, my idea is to make the drawings as simplified and fun as possible yet to have adults to be interested in the coloring them as well. I know from my teaching art experience that children are not afraid to color, yes, yes: adults are! And, than older person gets, then more “doubts” he or she places on one’s courage and desire to succeed. I want to create a book that will unite adults and children. Children will have fun drawing and do activities; and, adults would rejuvenate a Child from within their gorgeous Souls.

Now, you see why commission editorial illustrations for me are much easier to accomplish following business rules. In my personal project of creating horse book there are no rules per se.

Well, this journey will be quite an interesting one. I think I will have to start with the small steps and develop further and further.

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:

Watercolor Food Illustration – Slice of Pie 

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

watercolor painting in interior decor
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 🙂

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:
