NEW ヘッダー画像 ドーン♪

蝉がミーンミーンと泣いてます。お庭の朝顔もいっぱい咲き始めて夏真っ盛りです。
初めての夏を過ごす7か月の犬あんずもまんまと夏バテします。

ブログの見出しヘッダー画像がドーン!ってでっかくなった事、気が付きました?
最近ずっとInstagramでフォローしてるメキシコ在住の水彩画イラストレーター(@anavictoriana)に刺激を受けて、今まであまり興味のなかった水彩画を描いてみたいと思ったの。
彼女オススメの割とお安いコンパクトな水彩画パレットを早速ゲットしました。
中学校以来の再挑戦♪
当時は水彩使うときも私はほとんど水混ぜずに描いてたから、淡い色あいを出したり、ぼかしたりするのって難しい〜。『夢ミルいちご』の文字を塗ってみたら、色をいい具合に使えなくて失敗したっぽかった(涙)
だから、マーカーだ縁取りしてごまかしてみた。
せっかく描いてみたから、水彩画第一号と言う事でとりあえずヘッダーに使ってみたよ。

Cicadas started shrilling outside, and morning glories in mom's garden are blooming. 
Mom's 7 months old dog "Anzu" is experiencing her first summer, and she seems not to enjoy so much. ( she is always sleeping now. I think she suffers from summer heat.)

Did you notice the header image of this blog got bigger? 
I follow a girl water illustrator in Mexico (@anavictoriana) on Instagram, and instantly fell in love with her drawing and watercolor.
She made me want to try it, so I got watercolors right away.
I haven't done watercolor since junior high school. It is a challenge for me to make a light watery color since I used to draw with using only a little amount of water.
I didn't choose right colors for the text part, so I didn't like it for the first time. However, I outlined with black sharpie, and ummm.. Well, I guess it is Okay for my first try. Don't you think so?
