Thirsty work

I haven't posted in a while as I've been busy doing this...




and this!


The illustrations are for an outdoor campaign for one of Portugal's leading suppliers of drinking water - Agua Serra da Estrela. The artwork depicts the Portuguese mountain range, including typical cheeses, a shepherd with his sheep and the unusual dome shaped hotels found in the mountains.



I wasn't used to painting landscapes but I loved painting the water and of course daydreaming about holidays in Portugal mmmm.
I also hand-painted the lettering which translates as 'one of the best things coming from the mountain' . These are now live throughout Portugal on billboards, bus shelters ...oh yeah and online :)
