|First Aid Kit, graphite, watercolor, & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 11 x 10", 2012.|
My illustration was based on the video for their song, Emmylou:
The video had a 70s feeling, and I wanted that to also come through in my illustration. It also felt nice to paint something in warm desert colors when the city turned to ice this past weekend. When I heard this kind of country sounding song I assumed that these girls were from somewhere like Texas... It turns out that I was way wrong. They're from Sweden!
They'll be in Philadelphia at the end of March; it would definitely be nice to see them live. All of the videos of their live performances are very impressive.
