Watercolor Snacks Review and Giveaway


Rocky Nook "loves making beautiful educational books for creative people", and I was pretty excited to receive one for review. 

Watercolor Snacks Inspiring Lessons for Sketching and Painting Your Favorite Foods by Volta Voloshin-Smith is a book for anyone that wants to explore the world of watercolors in a fun and creative way. The book walks you through colorful and step by step illustrations to help you create edibles on paper that look good enough to eat. 

• Easy watercolor tips, tricks, and techniques

• Recommended supplies (the “ingredients”)

• Color theory basics

• Maximizing mindful benefits of watercolor

• How-to lessons for 30 foods from breakfast to dessert

When I received this book I thought it was the perfect book for my artistic daughter whose specialty is watercolors. She loves expressing herself through this art  medium and she is also a foodie in training so it was a perfect match. After perusing the book she was inspired to create this watercolor of avocado toast. 

Taking some tips from the pages of Watercolor Snacks and her own imagination she came up with this art piece. She thinks this book is great and for a beginner and even someone with a little more experience in watercolors. I've asked her to cook me up some more watercolor treats and I can't wait to see them. 

This book can be purchased online via the Rocky Nook web page as well as on amazon. You should also check out some more finely crafted books from Rocky Nook, everything from food photography to graphic design. whatever stirs your creativity you are sure to find a book published by Rocky Nook.
