Illustration Friday - Caution

Tilly the tight rope walker had been performing her act for a number of years but each night she would take that first step on to the wire with great caution. Then she would perform the most amazing tricks, somersaulting through the air and landing back on the wire, it was amazing!

Great story and illo! I love the "tent" feeling in the background with the crowd's little heads.

OH BUT YOU GOT ME WITH THE CIRCUS THEME!!! I am just in love with anything that has to do with the circus and your piece is wonderful and really shines. I like the character and the caution on her face says it all. Great illustration.

Wow!!! I'm applauding you, Nicola! You've painted a lovely, lovely girl whose face is turned..(which you had mentioned is tough to do)! You did it, girl!! The look on her face says it all..what a great illustration.

Also, I applaud you again for your previous post - you are such an inspiration because you take risks! New crackle-effect, varnish, stickers..you aren't afraid of any of it, which I marvel at..(cause I always hesitate if I don't think I can "do" that)..do you know what I mean? How awesome it is to see your work and your posts...thank you for sharing your art with us..it truly makes me smile to come visit your blog. : )

You do such great IF pieces Nicola! Bravo! I've been a little slack on them lately. I really wanted to do one for 'caution' but still haven't managed! haha
Great job and thanks for stopping by! ♥
