Nine Shades Of Raspberries - Yogurt Labels And More

Nine Shades Of Raspberry
Raspberries image is my number four creation for a new yogurt project that I am making for one developing company in Ireland. This company requested black and white images of raspberries; and, they are going to place them on the color lids. 

As I mentioned before, the interesting part for me as an artist, is that the original panting needed to be only in black ink. I am enjoying this new concept:




When I was done with ink painting of the image, I placed it on different shades of red and pink trying to recreate the fresh colors of ripe berries - Nine Shades Of Raspberries. 

My art collectors can order now not only these images on canvas, but as well on Pillows for Kitchen:

or, these juicy raspberries will surely look good on Farmers Market Tote Bags :

The ideas are endless!


The history of the raspberry image goes back at least three years of my art career. That year, my first watercolor painting of raspberries was created for a dear client for the Jam Labels project:

These Sweet Raspberries looked so lovely on the Raspberry Jam Labels:

Pure Vanilla - Yogurt Labels Project

pure vanilla beans

Madagascar Vanilla image for the yogurt labels was fun to create.
I had a challenge of putting together long stalks of vanilla beans and incorporate them in one composition with centerpiece of the flowers and vanilla leaves. 
In this image, I've decided "to tie" the vanilla stalks with the pretty Vanilla Orchid flowers.

The original image of Vanilla is in black and white. I am still wondering which background color out of those above Nine Shades Of Vanilla would fit the best:

Juicy Lemon Illustration - Yogurt Labels Project

Ink lemons
One more illustration, this time it is Juicy Lemon, was created as the part of the International project for yogurts' lids.

The decorative artwork represents Nine Shades Of Lemon creation. The labels themselves will have just one design on them with the choice of yellow background:

In this ink drawing I tried to capture the feeling of lemon skin and a juicy lemon flesh. It was an excellent challenge to depict the lemon with just two colors: black and yellow.

In comparison, the previous project for jam labels where I had a freedom of the color choice; this project had more realistic approach. 

A good example here is a bunch of lemons:

And here are some lemons with blossoms as the part of the Jam, Relish, and Marmalade Gallery:

Nine Shades Of Blueberries Yogurt Labels


I am happy to introduce a new exciting project that I am making for one developing company in Ireland. The company requested black and white images of blueberries for their yogurt lids. 

The interesting part for me as an artist, was that the original panting needed to be only in black ink. Quite a new concept for me; but, still very interesting.

When I was done with painting of the image, I placed it on different shades of blue from Sky Blue to almost purple Ultramarine Blue; and, that's how those black and white blueberries got their Nine Shades Of Blue

My art collectors can order now not only these images on canvas, but as well on Pillows for Kitchen, or on Farmers Market Tote Bags :

The history of the blueberries images goes back two or three years, when my first blueberry watercolor painting was created for a dear client for the Jam Labels project. I love this painting so much that I share it everywhere :)

Abstract Paintings

abstraction for interior of the home

After working on several commissions that involved not only the strict suggestions, artist's discipline, and realistic paintings techniques; I really wanted to rest my imagination on the abstract art. Researching recently how to work with mixed media, I applied several of those techniques to my watercolor paintings when created a totally new (at least for me) abstract artworks.

Needless to say, it did involve imagination and artist's skill; but this time I was moving the "brush strokes" applying only feelings and trying to abstract my mind from the realism.

And that is how a new Mixed Media additions to my Abstract Galley got created.
The warm yellow and brown fascinated my imagination. I saw some earthy, wavy, rocky texture; and, I called these series The Terrestrial Brush Strokes.

Another one was definitely reminding me a strong ocean filled with dynamic movements.

I called it The Sea Of Emotions:


brown yellow abstraction


When I introduced these earthy designs to one of my dear art collectors, I've heard a reasonable question: Why it is so brown? Can it be in some cooler colors, like for example purple, too?

I thought: There is nothing impossible for the Mixed Media and a wild imagination; and, the Purple Reflection series was created:

cool color organic art
 And later, for Some Likes It Hot, I've managed to put my artwork on fire an ignited the art designs that can make anyone warm :)

These and a few more Mixed Media designs found a great home in my Abstract Art Gallery; and soon they will travel the world in forms of prints, canvases, metal, and acrylic prints.
