New Cheese poster – Les Fromages Francais

Finally a new post 🙂 It has been such a long time since I last posted… It is far from forgotten, and believe me I would really love to post more and make more personal artwork, but until someone discovers how to duplicate ourselves, I just have to take it slowly and step by step. It is very difficult, because I am not very patient and I get frustrated quite quickly when I can’t do what I planned, but I guess realizing it is already some first little step to changing it 😉

Anyway, today I would like to present you my latest poster, which was making me very hungry for cheeses when I was painting it 🙂 I am such a cheese lover (as a french person, how could it be otherwise!!) and painting all kinds of different cheeses made me very happy!

I hope you like it! It is now available in my Etsy shop, don’t hesitate to check it out.watercolor-french-cheese-food-illustration-nathalie-ouederniposter-watercolor-french-cheese-food-illustration-nathalie-ouederni watercolor-french-cheese-foor-illustration-nathalie-ouederni

Friday Happy Hour: Whiskey Smash

Today is not friday, but I wanted to share with you an illustration I made a couple weeks ago for the stationery blog Oh So Beautiful Paper for their friday Happy hour post.

This week, I illustrated the Whiskey Smash, and here is the recipe:

The Whiskey Smash

2 oz Bourbon Whiskey
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1/2 a Lemon, Quartered
2 Mint Sprigs

Combine all of your ingredients in a cocktail shaker and add a few big pieces of ice, as big and as square as you can find and fit. Shake hard to pulverize the lemon and mint, then strain into a tumbler filled with fresh crushed ice. Garnish with more mint and enjoy!

Inkscapes

At the beginning of this year, I made this series of mixed media Illustrations, mixing an ink splatter i created first by hand with a photograph i took in different places. I scanned the inks and mixed it with the photograph in Photoshop. I called the results ‘inkscapes’ to mix ink and landscape in one same image. I wanted to experiment around the edges of an image, literally and figuratively. Where does a landscape start, where does it end?
