Hello, everybody. This is my first picture for WaWe, and I really enjoyed the challenge. I'm still trying to establish a working method and style for illustration, so I kept it a bit loose and experimental and just tried to catch my own natural response to the idea of spring. I would have liked to define all the elements better, but I couldn't do it without losing the softness and freshness of 'spring' that was the main point.
It comes pre-criticised by my better half:
'That's nice! Is their kite stuck in the tree?'
'No they're just admiring the tree in flower.'
'Well why are they holding a string?'
'It's not a string, it's a branch that's hanging down - okay, I can see that part is not drawn well!!!'
It's great to be part of WaWe, I'll look forward to next month's challenges.
