boats and shorts

So recently i was asked by Ellie of pretty much Penniless to create some lovely illustrations for her lovely blogsite, I decided to start the title first using watercolours my favourite meduim. Here is what i have created so far....
So this is the first draft of the comission, that i have done with the blue writing. Ellie wanted flowers around the writing there is alot more to do the drawing but i am very happy with it so far lets hope Ellie is :) x

I have also been working on my watercolour sketchbook, me mum, dad and joe ventured to essex so i could do some drawing in the sunshine. I decided that i wanted to lovely boats and tiptree ketchup with no one stopping except for the evil woman with the dogs that attacked me and i got abuse for it, i hope the lady with the orange top and the loud mouth beilieves in Karma because i do.

I have missed the freedom of drawing and painting what i want to its great, i have also been venturing into alot more fashion illustration this is as far as i have got atm... i saw a lady in paddington station wearing these shorts yesterday she had a really littlw waist and she was wearing this lovely leather belt. Let me know what you think of my paintings its always great to get feedback.
