Illustration Friday 'Subtract'

This week's theme is 'Subtract' which I must admit didn't fill me with creativity when I first thought about it but I decided to give it a go (which, of course, is the whole point of Illustration Friday!). I'm really glad I did as I feel like I came up with something fresh and new, for me. I decided to 'subtract' my pen/line work from this and resist the urge to outline it in ink as I normally would. That seems to be what I lean towards doing lately. It was hard work not outlining it as I was dying to do it but I'm really glad I didn't now. I painted this in water colour and also acrylic inks. I discovered a new art store just down the road from me and was really happy to see that they have heaps down there, I will probably be a regular customer of theirs from now on!!!

Hey Nicola. The word this week didn't exactly get my creative juices flowing either but this is still a cool picture. By subtracting the lines you've made the overall composition more natural-looking. Good show.
