I thought I'd share some recent summer inspired food I've illustrated. This year in the UK we are having a proper summer, which is very exciting! So everyday has been warm and sunny for weeks which is lovely (although today is cloudy, but hopefully that's a one off, it's still warm!). My flat gets very hot as it's on the top floor and gets the sunshine in the afternoon and evening, so it means I can't be cooking and creating more heat, so there's been a lot of yummy salads. One particular favourite has been courgette with pine nuts and basil or my version of pesto (minus the cheese) which I have to say has been delicious. It's super light, fresh and yummy. I've been having it with another cannellini bean salad which I'm going to draw up soon, and sometimes potato salad. Maybe that sounds like quite a lot of food.....hmm, eating is good.
I loved working on these in the sunshine (with the fan going obviously). I really hope this weather lasts, it's just a joy to feel the sun on your skin and not worry about taking layers wherever you go. I'm really enjoying it. Today I'm working on another coffee illustration and then I'm hoping to get to a local park researching for some new work. Have a lovely weekend :).
