Strawberries with balsamic vinegar

So glad with this tutorial. I was thinking of creating a recipe for TheyDrawAndCook for a while and this tutorial made me actually do it!

I decided to go for a simple but very tasty strawberry recipe. I looked for inspiration on Pinterest and searched Google.

Sketches

Then I started sketching. I did the strawberries with acrylic paint because I wanted the strong colour and the structure.

The lettering is done with a brush pen and the rest with a black marker.

Illustrator

In Illustrator I put everything together. I love the experimenting with positioning and colours in Illustrator.

And finally I recognised I was using the colours of the Italian flag, which seemed fitting for this recipe. As a contrast colour I used the red brownish colour of balsamico vinegar. and this is the final result:

It was a really fun project and I'm certain I will do more recipes. I loved this way of working with hand painted parts coming together in Illustrator. That was what helped me finishing this illustrated recipe.

I will upload the recipe to TDAC tonight.

Thank you Ohn Mar for this great tutorial!
