It’s our last week of food month! Last week I shared a little insight about becoming more adept at finding inspiration, so this week I wanted to share a resource that always inspires me when it comes to creating food art!
About this month’s theme: I always kick off MAE with food as our first theme of the year! When you’re getting into the habit of drawing, it’s a great way to start. Food is universal and instantly recognizable. Whether you wish to draw something simple or detailed, there is a lot of room to get creative.
The Daily Prompts
Theme: Something Sweet
Not gonna lie – sweets are my one true vice. I love to indulge in sugary confections on the regular. But you know what I love to indulge in more? Getting lost in doing something creative. Some days your drawing time will feel more like dessert – perhaps a reward for a busy day of work. Some days it will feel like a salad – hard to get yourself to choose it, but it makes you feel great in the end. Whether you view your time spent drawing as a treat or a discipline, you’re going to get the most out of it by consistently showing up.
I also love DRAWING sweets, so I have quite a few tutorials for you this week! See below!
If you only do one piece this week, try this:
Draw a donut!
Are donuts as irresistible to you as they are to me? In my life I’ve eaten a lot of donuts and I’ve drawn a lot of donuts. Check out my latest tutorial to learn how to draw a yummy pink donut!
In this video you’ll learn how to draw a piece of cake in a painterly, illustrated style using digital gouache.
This tutorial uses an older version of Gouache Paintbox, but If you’ve purchased the set from my site, you’ll find a download of the older version in your account!
