A new series of birds, in a slightly different style.
Here's a botanical illustration I started. I'm taking example on an actual poster I saw in a store, and I'm glad I did because it requires a lot a time already to just replicate it. I added my own touch to make it easier, but I still need to spend some time on this. To be continued.
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 she wanted to use an illustration of the campground in her invitation. It turned out pretty cute, and she was 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 they look mischevious.
Getting back to watercolors, with some small experiments. I used not to have patience to do that type of meticulous work, and now I enjoy it.
