Illustration Friday and Sunday Sketch 'Early'






This weeks Sunday sketch is one that I have done in preparation for my piece for Illustration Fridays theme which is 'Early'.

This cute couple must have been up all night talking on the beach as they now watch the sun rise.
I found the sunrise quite challenging but I enjoyed it. I've been so busy lately that this was the first real painting I've done in a couple of weeks. It's just a little canvas but I really liked the size for this challenge.

Hi Nicola!
Youve captured such a beautiful moment here, its really lovely.
Thanks for offering your help with regards opening an etsy shop (even though I'm a bit late in answering..sorry) As much as I would love to open up an Etsy shop, I'm just not sure what exactly i'd like to sell or how I would go about it...whether it would be originals or prints...or whether I'd be able to sort out the postage and packaging aswell as tackling my full time job too.
Or maybe I'm just overthinking it too much...perhaps I should just go for it...i don't know! :-)
