Most dictionaries state that country style means rural living in characteristic of farming or country life.
These are just a few words that express country style to me: rustic, homemade, casual, cozy, cheerful, simple, charming, and homespun.
Country style graphics bring to mind country picket fences, wicker baskets, drying flowers, candles, rocking chairs, old country cupboards, homespun quilts, plaids, checks, teddy bears, dolls, farm scenes, country scenes, shaker houses, angels, hearts, stars, and so much more.
Most country style graphic artists bring country elements of primitive, Americana, rustic, shaker, shabby chic, French style, English style, etc. into the making of their graphics.
Thru the years I have found that each country has it's own appealing style when it comes to creating country style graphics. It is hard to put into words all the different country style graphics that are available to us online.
I have been a country style graphic artist for over seventeen years and I am inclined to make muted and darker colored country graphics mixed with the primitive look. I love creating country graphics that depict country living and country crafting. To me country style homespun inspires me in the making of my country graphics.
What is your ideal vision of country style graphics?
