Japan series - wagashi - original drawingBy Veronique Vanblaere
Japanese desserts are so delicate and rarely overly sweet. My all time favorite is the very versatile mochi. It’s always made of pounded rice flower, giving it a chewy rubbery soft texture. It come in many varieties and flavors, but the stuffing is often sweet red bean paste, another favorite of mine. That said, I’ve been enjoying all the wagashi I could get my hands on while I’m here.
Drawing in ink and watercolor on watercolor paper. 5X7" matted to 8x10”.
I usually draw a few of each illustration instead of making prints, as it allows my customers to get an original drawing at an affordable price, which end up being less than what a print would cost. And each is still unique.
