Illustration Friday-Paisley and Sunday Sketch





This last one is Rhys' master piece!

I finally managed to squeeze in an illustration Friday piece! This weeks word is Paisley and this is what I came up with. I started with a sketch of the girl and didn't know what I was going to do with her as she was just a doodle in front of the tele then I started adding paisley to her body and it grew into a tattoo like design, I then painted it with these new pastel acrylic paints that I picked up the other day and outlined the paisley design with coloured pen!

My eldest Rhys also had a go at the paisley design, I started him off and once he understood the concept had a great time with it!

Nicola, this painting of yours is my favorite of your artworks to date - she is stunning, the tatts are amazing, I love the sky behind her - she is perfect in every way - LOVE IT! She would look stunning also as a tile pendant, a sort of tough mermaid! I hope you have framed this gorgeous illustration and it hangs proudly in your home. It is too lovely not to be shown off! Hugs, Val xo
