I had the opportunity to visit my home country this month and enjoy beautiful poppy fields and country views! I love France, I'm always delighted to go back and explore my home country.
Finally done with this piece!
I was so focused on getting the flowers right that I didn't put much effort into the written part. I may have to practice my handwriting soon.
A new series of birds, in a slightly different style.
Here's a botanical illustration I started. I'm taking example from an actual poster I saw in a store. I added my own touch to make it easier, but it is still a work in progress.
Here's a cool project I made for a friend's wedding. They had a late summer camp reception and week-end in the Catskills and they wanted to use an illustration of the campground in their invitation. It turned out pretty cute and they were very happy with it. Me too!
The ocelot is a wild cat native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central, and South America. The pattern on their fur is just gorgeous.
I had some fun creating these fuzzy birds, playing with different watercolor techniques. It's pretty hard to achieve vivid colors, but I was able to make some bright ones. I like how the black around the eyes make some of them look mischievous.
Getting back to watercolors, with some small experiments. I didn’t use to have patience with such meticulous work . Now I enjoy it.
