Food Art Friday: Sakuranbo to Ringo (Cherries and Apples)


To those who read Kanji, don’t laugh. I didn’t bother changing it since I already made a mistake. To those who dont, phew!! That’s a cherry… Sakuranbo in Japanese and I painted this for my Food art fridays.

Paappleinting cherries is similar to painting apples they start with the lightest lemon yellow and I gradually build up the gradient to reds and purples. I guess whats different is the way you render apples and cherries. Cherries are smoother and dont have the lines that apple have. also, cherries have unusual shapes and are smaller, thus a challenge to actually render.

Painting fruit teaches me how to layer color and play with light. I think though, I need more practice, but that’s why I am doing this Food Art Friday.


Summer Poppies and Apples

Summer Poppies .

Tried out a new technique and it worked and this is actually the first time I liked a picture of a flower I painted. Watercolor is truly amazing. I loved watching the paint move and make interesting stuff on paper. I loved playing with the color and watch it mix.  I experimented also on underpainting. I loved the colors it created on my page. Heres the apple I was working on.


And after…


Such a pretty bright red apple, don’t you think? I am still learning techniques and tricks in watercolor. I want to learn A LOT LOT MORE!!
