Watercolor illustrations for Royal Cane toppings

This series of illustrations is for the packaging design of toppings.
I drew these illustrations for Royal Cane.

Royal Cane searched for an artist and saw my watercolor botanical illustrations on Behance.
Then Royal Cane offered me to draw watercolor illustrations for their packaging of toppings.

The result is in front of you. Take a look, please.

I am an illustrator and draw with watercolor on paper.

For a watercolor illustration, choosing the right paper is very important. The density and the weight of the paper greatly affects both the drawing process and the result.

I like to paint on Saunders Waterford paper. It's not cheap, but it's worth the money.
For Royal Cane, I drew my illustrations on Saunders Waterford, satin, 300 grams.

I usually paint with watercolors White Nights, Migello, and Sennelier.

Royal Cane searched for an artist and saw my watercolor botanical illustrations on Behance. It was my first big project. BBDO Moscow commissioned me for botanical watercolor illustrations. They were redesigning a website for a pharmacy chain. I drew about 50 illustrations at that time.

After this practice, it was not very difficult to draw a few more illustrations. You just sit down and draw. First I drew all the sketches in pencil. Then, when the client (Royal Cane) approved all the sketches, I painted them in watercolor.

The main difficulty of watercolor illustration is that the illustrator has no right to make mistakes. A picturesque oil painting can be corrected. To fix an error in Photoshop or Procreate, just press Ctrl+Z.

You need to draw a fluid watercolor the first time because you can't fix it.

The client approved, accepted, and paid for the work. Behance visitors gave my work a few likes. I am also quite happy with the result. But I am constantly learning and practicing. After a while, I stop liking my old illustrations. I see their flaws, I understand that now I would draw differently, I would draw better. That's the kind of person I am.
