Watercolour and Produce

I’m learning how to do watercolour and I find myself gravitating to painting produce. I guess since I love to cook, taking a look at produce and studying it makes the process of learning watercolour somewhat easier.

I’m using this great book, Ingredients by Loukie Werle and Jill Cox, as reference for the produce I’m painting. It’s full of color photos, helpful descriptions and the price provides awesome value compared to other similar books.

Watercolor Projects

I’ve always been fascinated with travel journals. Tokyo on Foot inspired me to learn watercolor so I can keep a travel sketchbook.

Cool illustrations by the author, Florent Chavouet

So last week, I decided I’m going to learn how to do watercolor. I know it will be challenging since I’m just learning this through reading books but I’m hoping to join a proper class sometime this year when I’m not so busy anymore.

I borrowed a few books on learning how to do watercolor from the library and I’am currently reading Trudy Friend’s Watercolour Problems and Solutions. This book shows what are the errors beginners usually do and how to fix them.

Lots of great tips and tricks to jump start my learning process

Here are a few of my watercolor projects:

Still can't blend colors so well
