I used handmade detail of an illustration for making patterns. I usually make them with vector work to be able to scale them.. but this one is a kind of doodle, that can be fitted in small format illustration to come :-)
It’s been a long time we did not pay a visit to Lyon. We love our nature but sill from time to time it is great fun to go to the city and enjoy such a diversity of people and cultural opportunities!!! :-)
wiki-calisson: Calissons are a traditional French candy consisting of a smooth, pale yellow, homogeneous paste of candied fruit (especially melons and oranges) and ground almonds topped with a thin layer of royal icing. Calissons have a texture not unlike that of marzipan, but with a fruitier, distinctly melon-like flavor. Calissons are often almond-shaped and are typically about two inches in length. Calissons are traditionally associated with the town of Aix-en-Provence, France; consequently, most of the world supply of calissons are still made in the Provence region"
