Praise the Delta Breeze
Ink and Watercolor
First post of September! Starting the month off with my second illustration for the Sacramento Bee's California Forum section. The article, which is titled "A breath of fresh air: How I learned to trust the arrival of cool relief", is about the author's appreciation for the cool evening air that follows the heat during the day in Central Valley. The woman in the sky blowing onto the crowd of people represents the cool air and how people welcome its presences every evening.
Drawing the wind as a woman was really fun, and I might do something with her in the future. Painting the evening sky was a little challenging because I never paint skies in my usual work, but it turned out better than I had expected.
Special thanks to Nathaniel Levine and the Sacramento Bee for another great opportunity, I can't wait for another assignment!
I'm also working on a couple of commissions, they're still in sketch mode but they will be a post about them very soon.
