Summer Solstice Illustration

Summer solstice image showing blue sky and see in watercolour and the words Summer Solstice in white ink
Yes, it's finally time for the promised Summer Solstice image I knew I had to post, to balance the Winter Solstice one here (and which you'll probably prefer to share today if you're in the Southern Hemisphere).

Originally, I meant to have the two images "matching" in some way. But it soon became clear this wasn't how this image (in digital watercolour, in Krita) wanted to be. This was a puzzle, until an obvious truth hit home.

The two solstice points in the year are opposites. So it makes sense that the approach, tone and feeling behind each is going to be, well, opposite also.

In any event, feel free to share this jpg image as it is if it's of use to you today, or in illustrating Solstices generally.

Happy Solstice, and more soon.
