Illustration Friday 'Flying'




It was so hard to get a decent photo of this canvas so I'm afraid this is the best I could do. For this piece I used some patterned paper which I bought last week. I've got more left so would like to experiment further with this material. The theme for Illustration Friday this week is 'Flying', this is the image that came to mind. I've had many dreams where I could fly, how cool would this be if it were possible? Although I do have a fear of heights in the real world ;0)

This is what I would have done if I could draw better! Very nice work. Very pretty. (I have a great fear of heights in real-life, too!) Just do it!

Great job Nicola! Love her hair flowing upwards! I used to dream I was running and I slowly lifted off the ground and just glided over the neighborhood. It was awesome and I WISH I could have dreams like that again :)
Have a super week :)

You've been busy! Made me think of Wendy from Peter Pan. Love the use you've made of the paper in the clouds and her cute little red shoes! Well done xxx

Wow! I love the perspective!
This is lovely Nicola, i love how you can see the little trail of where shes been flying :-)

Awesome Nicola! I think this is lovely..your perspective over those building is super. Hard to do, and you've pulled it off beautifully! I think it'd be amazing to fly, a la Superman, but like you, I have a bit of a fear of anything "too high"...so, we can fly around the house around here and that's just fine with me. Always so great to check in on you!

This is awesome!!! I have had that same thought: that I love the flying dream, but wait--I am afraid of heights, too!! Nice piece.
