Tutti a tavola!!

I made this before knowing about EDM. They are illustrations for a book of recipes from the cuisine of Emilia Romagna. The editor didn't want dishes ready to eat, but products ready to cook. In a very EDMish approach, since these are quite traditional recipes he asked me for loose watercolor still lives, with not so many attention to the detail but to the atmosphere, avoiding any kind of modern tools and pottery.
They were all made with brown 0.7 pencil, Winsor & Newton watercolors and Talens Ecoline liquid watercolors on Fabriano 300g watercolor paper.
These are only a few ones, all the recipes can be seen here.
