It's been such a long time since the last post about watercolor illustrations. I am a huge fan of this style and technique going so far as trying to recreate this type of illustration in Photoshop, but nothing beats the real deal, at least till now.
Stefan Bleekrode is an artist and illustrator based in Eindhoven, Netherlands. He painted a beautiful and detailed painting of the city of Paris - La belle Ville de lumière. The technique of ink on watercolour paper is just stunning and you can't help to contemplate the level of details and contrast. Sometimes I do miss the purity of art, the hard work, and the patience of seeing the outcome in your head. This is inspiring, hope it will inspire your day.
