Sushi Rolls—Different Strokes for Different Folks

Last night, I decided to try for the first time, Karin Jurick's wonderful project, Different strokes for Different Folks. Some would call me crazy being I am traveling to Indonesia today, but I couldn't help slopping the watercolors around on this Yupo before I packed my paints and brushes in my luggage. It's a bit of a mess and quite a challenge for this self taught watercolorist, but I had to be brave and submit my first one. Then the rest will be easy?

This is great, Jennifer. I love the colors in the sushi--you got so many in there! And the soy sauce puddle is phenomenal.
Have an enjoyable trip--it must help to be heading to such a great destination!
I look forward to seeing your posts from Bali.

If sushi looked as good in person as you make it look here, I'd be willing to try it. Great job! Have a safe trip.

I was wondering if someone besides me would attempt this in watercolor. It really is a challenge, but you've done it wonderfully! Great colors and style!
