Food Painting Inspiration
Strawberry Cake With Berry Toppings
Use a watercolor shading technique (you can learn more about each one here) and the right angles to paint a delicious cake that looks like it is leaping off of the page. Now is a good time to practice your blending techniques too (psst..sometimes, all you need is a lot of water!)
Blueberry Pancake Breakfast
The painting that started it all! I came across this beautiful piece of artwork on Pinterest and it made me hungry for breakfast, and an opportunity to break out my paints! The shading on these blueberries makes them look good enough to eat.
A Healthy Meal
When I look at a meal like this, I can’t help but think of summer. I like how the artist below drew each ingredient individually, and then made the meal complete with everything cooking in the cast iron skillet. Take a look at the painted sheen of the oil in the pan, too! Use the steps in this tutorial to create a similar effect in paintings of your own.
There’s nothing like a fresh piece of avocado toast in the morning and it can be a bummer when you miss out on such a good eat because you’re running out the door. Fortunately, you’ll never have to worry about that with a painting like this hanging up on your wall! If you ask me, looking at it (and even painting it!) is just as good as the real thing.
Fries Wrapped In Newspaper
If you’re tired of thinking of things to paint, why not try your hand at painting one of your favorite foods? In my case, that would easily be some french fries! Instead of painting them on something like a plate, wrap them in newspaper instead so you can practice your texture techniques as you create the folds of the paper.
