Lemon Pound Cake Recipe Illustration, inspired by Matisse
When my daughter was small, she had a babysitter named Mrs. Ruby Thomason. Clarice could not pronounce her full name, so she called her "Mrs. Tommy."
I decided to find one of Mrs. Tommy's recipes and submit it to They Draw and Cook.
Matisse's Black Philodendron with Lemons has been on my mind ever since I read the book Matisse: A Second Life. I borrowed the red, yellow, and green motif from this artist's work.
Matisse is famous for his cut-outs, so I cut out the individual hand-painted elements in my illustrations and grouped them together - just for fun.
I used Posca acrylic paint markers on Canson watercolor paper to create these elements.
The black outline is reminiscent of Matisse's style.
Then, I opened everything in Photoshop to achieve the final recipe. You find this and many other lovingly painted recipes on They Draw and Cook.
Happy painting (and cooking and eating)!
