What can be better than working from home eating fruit and painting it?

I was a bit nervous at first when charged with the challenge of creating illustrations for this quirky organic hard candy. My medium of choice is oil or acrylic, I cannot remember when I have used watercolor last….grammar school? As luck would have it, or genetics, my Aunt Erzsi is a gifted botanical illustrator. So I called her up to give me advice on how best to work with the medium and subjects. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her amazing guidance.

Creating characters

I did research on the flavors of the hard candy and where they are derived from. The flower illustrations depict each fruit flavor, pear blossom, blood orange blossom etc. The insects were created to characterize the irresistable attraction to these unique candies.
