Heart To Heart


These few hearts are my preparation batch for CWA Outreach Lesson that my colleague and I performed for Clayton Elementary School. Fourteen fearless Brownie Girl-scouts grabbed their brushes and moved to the unknown. 

We taught kids how to apply wet-on-wet, painted with invisible wax candle to reserve the whites, and how to make a creative art by using only three colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. 

The art of the kids was amazing. As always, we were stunned by imagination of a young brain. Each painting was unique, fresh, enchanting. 

Here are just a few paintings of that gorgeous kaleidoscope:

Last month of sales was predictably successful. After all, many people were buying gifts for friends and family. And, I am so happy to admit that many of them were focusing on buying artworks as gifts and home interior decor. 
But I was also up to a little surprise there. Some of the clients bought many pieces, such for example merchandise, with my art on them. 
Here are just a few of them.

I am blessed by amount of commissioned artworks that I had to paint for this project.
Delicious and healthy wooden bowls of steamed veggies and different grains and beans are speaking for themselves. 
Above artwork is of Lentil Bowl with bell peppers, carrots, and zucchini pieces, all painted in watercolor in realistic technique. 

I love painting food. It is my new diet so to speak: instead of eating, I am painting. Okay, I am eating it too :)  

Here is another tasty addition to my art collection of watercolor food illustrations portfolio. Such popular these days Quinoa grains with snow peas, eggplant, bell peppers, and garbanzo beans:

Watercolor Food Illustrations of Bean Patty Burgers by the artist and illustrator Irina Sztukowski

I've painted this watercolor food illustration for my client. The patties of these delicious burgers are made from Black Bean and Red Beans. I had to make sure that the texture of the patties were shown differently and be diverse from a regular beef burger.
