WIP and new illustrations

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!

    1. Thank you Sandra 🙂 for some reason ‘food’ popped up in my head, and some of them we will frame and hang in the kitchen. Really need to frame and hang more around the house too


  2. Wow—the creative juices were flowing big time in you this weekend. I love all of your paintings–but today, the crayfish one is my favorite one. Keep up the good work.
