France as Seen by IrinaR. Episode Five: Food Shopping.

30cm x 23cm, Ink and Watercolor
Food like national idea. Food like joy and adventure. Food as source of beauty and aesthetic taste. Food as method of self-expression and self-esteem.
So there is no surprise that every smallest grocery shop is masterpiece in decoration and content.

  1. I know what you mean, Irina. I just landed in Australia and I'm going around taking pictures of the beautiful food on display in the shops.
    Enjoying your artwork on France!

  2. Something about France has brought out a new definition of style in your paintings! I loved Paris, too. Wish I could go back soon.

    1. Thank you Petrea. I felt like I became a bit French myself, when returned. Now, 3 weeks later, French air in me already evaporated. But when I did these sketches, you are so right, I was still very influenced by gorgeous France.

  3. Your sketches of France are so beautiful. Loose and free. And detailed. I love the detail in this sketch of the grocery store.

    1. Thank you, Carol! Somehow the drawing of the details makes me meditative and calm, though should have opposite effect, I think.
