Yesterday, I decided to combine two of my old and new passions into one project: a bento box painted with gouache!

I dug through my bento box photo archives and found a photo with a lot of bright colors and simple shapes to reproduce. Then I traced the basic outline onto watercolor paper and went to town painting it.

And if you’re curious, this is the original photo that I worked from. Pretty close, right?
