Illustrative Fine Art,Food Painting,Watercolor “Cayenne Pepper” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


Cayenne Peppers have the most interesting shapes. I love to grow them in my garden. Each one has a different and unusual twist. This original watercolor is on hand tinted Fabriano Artistico Soft Press300 lb watercolor paper. I hand ripped the deckled edge before doing the painting and then "distressed" the background before painting the pepper on top.

Illustrative Wildlife Fine Art, Sea Life,Mixed Media Art “SALLY LIGHTFOOT CRAB” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



The Sally Lightfoot Crab is an amazing array of dazzling color! I saw these crabs while visiting the Galapagos Islands. At different stages of their lifecycle, they molt their outer shells and emerge with a different color combination. As juveniles they are a darker indigo blue and as they age they become more brilliant and multicolored. I painted this on Fabriano Artistico Soft Press 300lb watercolor paper. I first used watercolor to establish the basic colors. The rocks were done with a granulating watercolor called hematite. I finished the painting using colored pencil and pastels for do the details on top of the watercolor.

Illustrative Wildlife Fine Art ,Watercolor Painting, Colored Pencil,Tropical Bird“Toucan in Papaya Tree” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






This original painting of a Toucan in a Papaya Tree is a painting I demonstrated in my new book, The Art of Botanical and Bird Illustration .
I used colored pencil and watercolor pencil to do this painting on Fabriano Artistico Hot Press 300lb watercolor paper. For the painting I used my sketches and photographs of a Rainbow Keeled Toucan and purchased a papaya tree that I planted and grew in my yard. Lucky for me I live in Florida and a local nursery had a good sized papaya tree I could do live drawings from. This is one of my favorite paintings and I throughly enjoyed every minute of composing it and painting.
