Illustration friday "strong"


Here is a little cartoon style illustration for this weeks Illustration Friday topic "Strong". It is A5 sized, on watercolour board and was a chance for me to play with my NEW paints! It is really a working sketch for a larger piece I am toying with.
So, to mark the start of me getting back into the swing of things, and especially, as a 'thankyou' to all my readers who have stuck with me through the summer holidays, despite blog posts that have consisted mainly of "too busy to talk now, having fun!", I have decided to put this sketch up for grabs.
So, anyone who is interested needs to leave a comment after THIS post, saying something along the lines of 'enter me'. You can still comment of course, if you wish, even if you don't want the painting! I will only enter those who ask to be put in the draw. I will close the entries next Tuesday ( 9 pm Uk time) and draw the winner at random. Obviously, if you want to be entered, you need to be contactable, so anonymous commenters need to leave an email address please.

Please enter me! This is absolutely gorgeous. I'm bookmarking your blog and looking forward to seeing more of your illos!
Also, what a grand idea to give away sketches (though this is way beyond a "sketch"). Like an ATS - Art Trading Sketch.

Yarrow said...

Thanks for your comment, my reply is:
'Yes, do them another time :) Now is the time to paint!'

It's all I want to do, but as I need to take lots of breaks to let things dry, I can fit housework and 'stuff' in between.

I don't know if it's just early days, but I can't sit for hours at a painting without lots of little breaks. Do you find this or can you just sit to it?

Julia Guthrie said...

Oh gorgeous!! Love the colours...& I would love the entered in the draw too please :) x
