So it's the easter weekend and although it doesn't feel very spring-like I wanted to share some spring influenced illustrations. I've been drawing lots of daffodils this week. Just having a bit of an experiment with some techniques and colours and having a good old play around.
I did loads of colour sketches here's three below
I decided in the end to go with the yellow/blue tones. I enjoy experimenting like this so much and it really helps sort my ideas out in my head.
The image above is my final finished version. I'm really happy with the colours because for me they really remind me of spring. Unfortunately I was working on this whilst it was a very grey and rainy day outside, (I was pretending there was sunshine!) but we have got lighter evenings here now so things are looking up!
I hope you have a lovely break if you're having one over this weekend, so far I have only eaten one hot cross bun :).
