I started to do some experimentation with materials, doing food illustration.
I first of all started with some watercolour, as I want to use mainly watercolour with my cook book. I did a couple of experiments to see how well they would turn out, and I feel that they worked really well.
I really enjoyed doing the water colour images, as it was a looser way of working, and I could blend the colours a lot more. I feel you can add the detail, but still have a simplistic look. This is probably how I will illustrate my food and my narrative scenes as well.
I also did some continuous line drawings as well, I really liked how the carrots turned out. Although I do like these types of illustrations, they often leave too much white space, and it is harder to add in detail, especially when doing my narrative scenes, which would be very detailed.
I did do some more experimentations, which I will include in my next post.
