daughters and sons


It's been a couple of days since my last post. Life kept me busy but here finaly is another new illustration. The idea of a sunny day with a family came to me, well I don't know why as it seems to be constantly raining since a couple of weeks. So probably this is my wishful thinking, that the sun will return soon.
After sticking to watercolours for my last illos, I went again digital with this one. I also tried a new format. Thought it suited the whole scenery fine and I felt it gives those figures some space to actually use their "equipment" and cycle along the way.

  3. Hello Maria, I love the freshness in this. Good call for the long format and that great contrast between the delicate sky and the rusting bow of the ship. The shadows are very luminiscent.

    see you :)

  11. This has a really nice feeling to it...late in the afternoon in late summer heading home after a day of riding bikes with the family you can smell the salt of the sea and hear the gulls sqaulking overhead, nice.

  21. maria, can't tell you enough how much I love this illustration — especially the ship and those clouds and that pathway with wall ... they combine to create a mood and a stylistic signature that's really, really appealing to me.

    I'd love to see more in this style.
    It's a great style for a story-book, really.

    The ship is my favorite of favorites here.
    I will print it out and put it on my wall ...

I mean, you've always been fabulous, but something is happening here where you're just catapulting to some higher level!
