Botanical Illustration and Food Illustration of Douglas Schneider


Food illustration and botanical illustration for packaging

If you are looking for an alternative to the typical slick digital food illustration being used lately, why not look to the past? With over thirty years of experience Douglas Schneider combines the traditional techniques of watercolor and colored pencil with Photoshop to give you production-ready food, fruit and botanical images.   Doug’s illustrations have a more hand done look to them than normal digital illustration, and his paintings evoke a nostalgic, romantic era of years gone by, and still produce a realistic look. His drawing and rendering abilities are adventitious when a certain product, food or plant is in reality not the most visually appealing, and photography or retouching won’t work. Doug has the creative capabilities to make an appealing food illustration from almost any unattractive subject.

Douglas Schneider has been a realistic food and botanical illustrator who specializes in painting illustrations for packaging.  He became a premier choice in the United States for realistic watercolor illustrations with a traditional feel to them.  His paintings have graced many large American companies’ labels including Alberto Culver, Bath & Body Works, Bolthouse Farms, Castella Imports, Clorox, Frito-Lay, Miller Coors, Shaklee, Smuckers, T. Marzetti Co., UniLever, Victoria’s Secret, Wal-Mart, and Williams Sonoma.  More recently, the rest of the world has discovered Doug’s illustrations, and his images have been used throughout Europe, Oceania, North America, and South America.

Doug also has a large number of food, fruit and botanical illustrations that are available for stock use. If interested, please view his stock art section.
