Gesture Illustration Friday

 He had never brought flowers to a girl before but as a gesture of his true affections....A little play with watercolor and digital coloring.
 As a gesture of kindness she prepared the guest room for her visitors. Fresh flowers, water with lemon & mint, a selection of good books to browse. The bed turned down for the late arrival, a picture of comfort.
 Again a play with both watercolor and digital painting, which do you think is more appealing?
 As a gesture to her creative nature she made her wedding gown. It became a creation of borrowed, old and recycled as she used old family lines to baste together a bit of history.

Wow! I really enjoyed my visit to your site. You are very talented. I smiled when I saw your "stay" picture for Illustration Friday as we were both thinking along the same lines! =)

I love the way you handle watercolours, so I am partial to all three of your watercolours. What beautiful work.

I love your watercolors. There is a depth to them that just seems lacking in the digital paintings, with the exception of the turned down bed. That one is quite nice.

Thanks for your comments. I do love watercolors but it is interesting to learn digital skills. It keeps the brain working :o

lovely, lovely oh so lovely.

I find the addition of digital to watercolor fascinating. Had never conceived of it before... wow!

Grateful to find you via CED2011 today!

These are wonderful and I love that you have done them in both watercolor and digital! I like the watercolor best on the bed but the sheets look better in digital ( like invitingly soft!)Loved the stories with them too!
