Flora & Romantic Country

The Summer of love continued this week as I got into the full swing of a lovely wedding illustration project. Beginning to lay down some paint to further define a few areas as I go. I have a 25inx35in piece of Archer's watercolor paper stretched out over a huge piece of wood so that I can paint in peace with out having to worry about buckling and warping. I also love to work with a set of water soluble colored-pencils.

Flowers and romantic country music have been the driving inspiration for me this week. Yes, country music. While I was home visiting my family in Virginia this past weekend, I grabbed a few of my Dad's albums and to my great surprise can not get enough of a Alison Krauss & Union Station album called, New Favorite. Just plain gorgeous blend of country, folk and bluegrass, putting me in the right mind-set for creating this whimsical out-doorsy lake scene. And then... hey, look the H. MacDo Studio finally got some strawberries this week too!

The summer of love is in full effect! Preliminary sketches for a new illustration have begun.

This poster sized illustration is a personal commission for a good friend's wedding taking place in their favorite summer retreat of Lake George, NY, later this month.
