Midsummers Night Illustration Friday

Summer will it ever get warm? Nicotiana is one of my favorite summer flowers sweetly scented in the evening.
Watercolor and pen and ink in layers.

Play with boats, for sunday postcard art some  digital play. Which one do you think works best?

I started this with a textile design for Spoonflower but when I saw the challenge was boats thought I might rework it. Spent some time this morning on my brothers boat. Calm and sun filled.

Illustration friday shadows

Shadow play illustration friday. Two cat who could be friends but are usually back to back avoiding one another. This japanese maple moves with the breeze casting dancing shadows. The japanese glass floats create a special mulch at the base of the tree. All glow and move with the sunlight.

And since there are elements of pink and brown I'm adding themethursday to the posting :)
