15/30 Days of Illustration – Green Tea and Dango

Spring is finally coming to Yokohama and I was feeling inspired to paint some spring-themed paintings! Thought I’d start with dango. These little rice dumplings are yummy and also look really adorable. They’re often in shops around spring time, and are made in light, seasonal colours.

I started off mapping out what I wanted to paint, and noting the colours to keep in mind in the margin. The painting looked a bit dark at first but I was actually happy with how it turned out.

I like the spring-like quality of this and think it does look pretty yummy, if I say so myself :) Perhaps I’ll have a go making some this year?
