This watercolor was inspired by Illustration Friday, a blog that posts a weekly illustration challenge. This week's theme is"Satellite", so here it is, my bear in space. I think this is really fun because I would have never painted a satellite otherwise. It was a bit challenging coming up with a design, but I did it, and I like it.

Summer 2

More summer colors at The Weekly Creature. This one took some time to finish, since I couldn't decide what to do for the ground. After many different options, I decided to paint the straw-like grass that grows at Point Isabel. It's hard to believe that when winter comes back, it will all turn green again.

When I set out to paint the sketches that I previously posted, I was inspired by the natural colors of the northern California summer. After a walk by the sea with my family, I came home with all these water and sand colors in my mind. The clouds we saw that day were long and thin, like brush strokes.
