Judy Unger’s enticing imagery explores the use of vibrant colors and textures through a uniquely personal photorealistic technique using watercolor dyes and colored pencil. The artist refers to the work as being “idealistic,” never wanting the food illustrations to be so perfect that they are no longer appetizing.
Brilliant washes of color combine to create rich tones. Food and botanicals have frequently been favorite subjects and water droplets are often featured in the paintings. The artist’s distinct shimmering imagery and vibrant colors characterize the most recent botanical-inspired images.
Most of her original paintings are approximately 8" x 10." She has hundreds of images available from her prolific art career that were used as labels for major food companies. Please contact the artist with any inquiries.
