52 Week Illustration Challenge

I will be linking this to Paint Party Friday...the Link is to the right sidebar on the image.

I am totally loving this 52 Wekk Illustration Challenge Facebook Page. The place is inspiring to say the least. I am pretty sure I have always been drawn to children's illustrations. They make my heart sing, and Picture books are just about one of my favourites...so much can be said in a picture.

So, here are two that I have been working on for the Challenge.

The first one the prompt word was "secret".

This is watercolour and pigment ink pen. 





The next one is for the following weeks, and it has the prompt word "sadness".
I actually have wrecked it I think by adding the sky. 😥
Oh well, you live and learn.





I will be adding the "secret" painting to my etsy shop.
This was made specifically to fit into a small ribba ikea square frame.

You can find my etsy sales on the right hand sidebar link.

Thank you once again for joining me and popping by and saying hi, and every comment is greatly appreciated.

Until next time
Lots of it

Both paintings are gorgeous, my fave is definitely 'secrets'. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

nope not ruined, actually it improved it because the blue cooled down the painting bringing out the sadness of the girl. without the sad sky background color it seems too summery. It worked perfectly. ;o) Happy PPF!

such a sad little girl, like both with and without the sky. But, secrets is the best. I love that one.
