Illustration Friday: Snap















Some happy little snap peas for Illustration Friday.

I had some time at the end of a long workday, so I sketched some peas and added some watercolor. Then of course I had to tweak tweak tweak and tweak some more in Photoshop, because it wasn't right. I'm taking a watercolor class, starting next week, and taught by my old friend and former boss who is an excellent painter--I'm very excited because I need some instruction in the basics; most of the time I am just slopping paint around randomly and I'd like to know what the heck I'm doing.

Wow what a beautifull illo! I love the colours! And yay for doing a watercolour class - thats the hardest paint to work with. Good luck with your mastery of it - I'm totally hopeless! :-D

Thanks for your description of how you did this piece. I hadn't thought about tweaking a watercolor in photoshop... I've "done" pseudo watercolors IN photoshop... after pen and ink renderings. Yummy peas and nice choice of font.

Hi Chrissie,

I'm very glad you decided to join us on the forum - I am however, now completely addicted to your blog! It's fantastic! You have such a confident and strong handling of figures and colour which is very inspirational. I look forward to more entries in the future!

Take care

Great colours Chrissie! Your work inspires and depresses me in equal measure ;) You really do draw beautifully.
