Last year, I started what I hoped would become a tradition of commemorating special meals/wines in watercolor paintings (my pandemic hobby). I described the idea further in my post from last year: Commemorating Meals and Wines in 2021. It looks like the photos from that original post have gotten distorted unfortunately.
Here are some of the pages from my 2022 edition. I haven’t bound it into a book yet, so these are just loose pages. I think they photograph better before being put into a book anyway.
Thanks to everyone here for all the knowledge and inspiration! Looking forward to spending 2023 with you all!
Noah I am blown away by the artistry and the creativity. And these are so intimate, so personal. Thank you so much for sharing. I have to admit if I have any envy in me at all, and I really have almost none, it is exactly this: freehand artistry. The percentage of our society that has true, artistic talent like that this is exceedingly low. I went to a fine architectural college, and while I thought I was talented, I did not have this type of freehand artistic ability. I think in my class of 120 people, maybe five had this type of talent. The ability to just create art from scratch, free style. I absolutely love it. Please keep sharing.
Thanks! I like the chickens too. And I thought the cardinal came out very nicely, though I got a bit overly enthusiastic with the splatters at the end there. The accompanying menu looks like it’s covered in blood spatters! Is this a menu page or evidence from a murder scene?
