Summer holiday illustrations (part 1)

Finally that sweet summer vibe is kicking in at Roth headquarters. I asked some of the illustrators to portray the summer feeling – and I got some awesome entries. This week I’ll show you the diary sketches of Maaike Wijnands. She uses her talent (and watercolors) everywhere she goes. Come along and step into her peaceful world of lovely, dreamy summer holiday illustrations.

Do you remember camping in that fantastic lodge tent or tipi? And wouldn’t it be great to capture the spirit of the moment on paper? Maaike does just that, with her great eye for specific details and scenery. The flowers on the bedding, the pegs on the clothing line, the stripes on the mattress, the balloon fish blowing in the wind… You feel as if you’re there on location, with her, observing the people and the houses. The details draw you into the scene, while everything else seems far away.

Have a wonderful summer!
