Hope you’ve all had a great and relaxing weekend. My weekend has been a bit productive, I was able to work on my canal boat painting and also do some new illustrations. The new illustrations has the theme ‘food & beverages’. I started out by drawing up a crayfish, and with this image I was inspired by the Crayfish Festival that takes place in Sweden every year, in August. And living abroad, this is one of the traditions that I miss. I do love seafood!!
I was using watercolour pencils for two of them and then ‘normal’ watercolours for the Coffee illustration, where I also were using calligraphy ink for the text.
In the canal boat I had to make several washes/layers to get the red colour right. I will be working more on this in the weekend to come. The weekends is the time when I can sit and work for a longer time.
If you would like to see some of my previous painting and illustration with a maritime theme visit my webpage at http://1-eva-ason.artistwebsites.com/art/all/boats+and+sea+scapes/all here you can also buy prints of my art.
I will be back next week with new updates on my work! Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead!
