I hope you've had a good week.  Today I'm sharing an illustration I made following an article I read entitled 'Can we say goodbye to suncream?'  Sometimes I read articles and some ideas randomly spring to mind and I also want to expand on my subject matter a bit.  I also felt like drawing something sunny as it is summertime, although just lately here this is not so evident!
I new I wanted to do something with sun rays, suncream factors and bottles, and I also wanted to stick to a limited palette taking advantage of the combination of warm and cooler colours.  This is the end result.

I tried a number of different layouts, some with the bottles scrunched in the middle as the sun but in the end this one worked best in my opinion, the idea being the suncream is being thrown away by the sun rays.  The conclusion of the article is that we are not there yet, so keep layering on the cream!
Below are some of ideas I played around with.

That's it for now.  I've got a day of drawing and painting ahead working on something new.  Have a lovely weekend :).
