Colour me Creative – Tangy Citrus Summer

It is hot. Oh, so hot. The temperature is rising and doesn’t plan to stop. Sunny skies are here to stay in Whistler.

When I take a look at this weeks colour palette, tangy, sweet citrus sherbets come to mind.

There is definitely the sweet feel of summer going on here.

A few pattern swatches on my desktop. These will be some fun shapes to use when I get a chance to have fun in my art journal.

Unfortunately, the sound of work was calling this week and I didn’t have time to create in my art journal. Instead kitchen wall art was in the making.

I loved this assignment! I have to admit I am just a wee bit in love with all of my fruit and vegetables. I am hoping to get a chance to create some illustrated recipes for They Draw and Cook this summer. With all the fruit and vegetables coming into season, it is hard not to be inspired.

I am also very inspired by my new Photoshop skills and the mix of all of my painted bits and pieces and the digital world. This is a whole new way of working for me and I am loving it. A big shout out to Instructor Sherry London and Pattern Observers Photoshop for Designers.

Photoshop for Designers is a 6 week intensive class that dives deep into the magic of Photoshop. It is full of information, so much information! Videos, PDF’s, a class forum plus a private Facebook group – no question will be left unanswered.

Sherry is a well spoken, very effective instructor willing to give her all to you. She is first to jump in and explain in detail any question you may have, which as you can imagine…is many, when it comes to Photoshop.

The next class starts July 6th. It would be the perfect summer project to dive into! Head on over to Pattern Observers site  for all the details.

Enjoy your week and don’t forget to support your local farmers market!
