Sunny striped awnings make me smile.
Boston, MA. - J.McLaughlin shop, pve design illustration
Canvas stripes in french blue remind me of the shops in France.
Do you love striped awnings as much as I do?
What color would your band of stripes be?
Thank-you to J.McLaughlin for being a sponsor, I love knowing that I illustrated the first three shops and now they have over 40 shops. More shops to sketch are on my drawing board. I truly never get bored with my work!

Oh, fun question! (And what wonderful drawings!!) Hum, can they be changed with the season? Turquoise and White for summer and Gray and White for winter.

I love green and white as my awning. It's bright, cheery and has a touch a class.
LOVE these illustrations! :)

I'm drawn to the French blue and white-but would have to say black and white for my home. I'm feeling very spring-into-summer here. Have I mentioned how lucky McLaughlin is to have you as their illustrator?

I love striped awnings - it's such a shame they don't suit our house! Love your divine drawings. Leigh

Your sketches are always so lovely. How much do you charge for your renderings?

Frau said...

Love awnings....our rental here has yellow and white but I'm either a green and white or black and white kind of girl.

I am a total freak for awnings, especially black ones. When driving down the road someone may say, "Hey, look at the fabulous tree!" but I miss it. Why? I am looking at awnings.

Nicely done! My very favorite trench, in nantucket red, is from McLaughlin. Love!

Janet said...

Bright red!

Kwana said...

I think my awning would be orange and white or green and white. Maybe orange,green and white? These are so much fun.

I do like awnings. When we stayed at the Greenbrier last fall, one of their little restaurants featured pink and white awnings - so festive!

the shop on Providence Road here in Charlotte is in an adorable craftsman cottage... let me know when you sketch! I'd love to buy a copy of it :)

ooo, and I'm in the midst of putting a black & white awning over my patio...

Emily said...

I love them! You have such a gift to make an illustration, watercolour; basically whatever you envision you can recreate in a beautiful way. Lucky dog.

Kelley said...

These illustrations are so nice! My favorite awnings are the red and white ones. They remind me of old-fashioned candy shops.

Renee Troy said...

I do so love your illustrations and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do for the fundraiser for A Place to Bark.

Is there any way to purchase these illustrations? I'd like one of them in a larger PDF version if possible!
