Lark rise illustration

I have been hard at work, trying to get everything and all my illustrations together for my new website, which will contain a mix of all things illustration, my shop will also be included in this as well, this is a piece i have created for the front cover of the Book Lark rise by the author Flora Thompson, the front cover for the book i have is pretty magical.

 this is a wee illustration for my website. I am using new coloured watercolour paper and i think it has worked so well, means i don't have to put to much of a layering of under colours down first i can just work on the illustration itself. I had a wee bit of a disaster with drawing, i had painted it all then i accidently spilled water on to it. At it didn't run, i was shocked the paper was so thick it practically just soaked it up!
I hope you like the drawing above it isn't totally complete i wanted to give everyone a sneaky little peek!


  1. It looks fantastic, great job! I'm so jealous of your talent, I always wanted to be an illustrator but I don't have the drive :(

  2. Ella, your work keeps getting better and better. This is wonderful!
