It was an interesting week, and such weeks need a cheerful bit of inspiration to lead the way into the weekend. This illustration by Monica Ramos definitely fit the bill. I really enjoy the cheery atmosphere of the alpacas in this image. The composition is well done, and each alpaca has a different personality. The fact that this is a watercolor illustration is very impressive, because I have been struggling to work with watercolor recently, and understand that it takes a different type of control, if you can even call it that. The use of color and the way certain emphasized qualities are included all hold together nicely in a complete composition. An added bonus is the connection to the fiber world, which I occasionally dabble in as well. Design, painting, and fiber inspiration all in one!
