Happy New Year!!

Rainbow Sun Shower - drawn using felt tip black pen, scanned onto Mac, coloured and texturised using Photoshop. The background was created using watercolours on watercolour paper which was then collaged into illo using Photoshop.
I really enjoyed creating this piece! It was actually created for illustration friday (this week) and was meant to have firecrackers in the background (Happy New Year...) but as per usual my direction changed midstream and it turned into a kid and her best dog sitting on a hill, watching a rainbow sun shower. Anyway, this illo made me feel really Happy and it is technically still the New Year?
