Illustration Friday - Dance



This was inspired by a photo of my little one twirling around. She loves to dance, Top of the Pops is her favourite - no namby pamby kiddy music for my daughter, she's a full on rock chick! Thankfully at only 14 months she also loves her frilly dresses and is utterly adorable.

Oh, and I actually painted this one instead of colouring it digitally like the last one, in fact I went as far as buying myself a massive set of gouache (watercolour are too thin for my liking and acrylic dry too fast on paper to be manageable). This is just a quick attempt, to see what would happen and I much prefer it. I can feel a whole new style of work developing and it's very exciting!
