A Leisurely Tea - Recipe Illustration Tutorial
An illustration tutorial bringing art into the kitchen!
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with an illustrated recipe tutorial for a leisurely tea using Creative Studio Goldfaber Color Pencils, Goldfaber Watercolor Pencils, and Playing & Learning Connector Paint. On a typical day, this recipe feels rather elaborate and I am rarely able to manage the time. But with my current situation, not only are schedules slightly more flexible but the need for sanity savers and soul soothers is at a premium.
I have made a complete materials list for you.
- Castell® 9000 Graphite Pencil Design Set - Tin of 12 - #119064
- Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils - Tin of 48 - #114648
- Goldfaber Color Pencils - Tin of 48 - #214748
- Kneadable Art Eraser - Assorted Colors - #127321
- Deluxe Water Brush - #770306
- Connector Paint Box - 24 Colors - #125029
- 9 x 9 inches watercolor paper
Let’s start by looking at the ingredients.
Start with a light sketch of the ingredients using the Castell 9000 pencil 2B on watercolor paper. Nothing needs to be an exact copy of the actual object. It’s more fun to draw them in your own style.
Start coloring the elements with the Goldfaber Watercolor Pencils.
Blend the colors with a deluxe water brush.
TIP: This water brush is particularly helpful because there’s no spill risk when you are sharing table space with others as I am right now.
Dip your water brush in the Connector Paint of your choice and brush letter your recipe title.
Once the colors are all dry, write the ingredient list and the recipe itself with a Goldfaber Color Pencil to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating it. Stay well and stay creative!
