ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY - CRAVING

This is my first entry into the Illustration Friday group. The subject for this week was "craving".


She craves to be on a tropical island as she does the housework

It is a mixed media piece done on a 5"x7" flat canvas. I used Acrylic paint, card stock, pages from an old book and gel medium.

Thanks for taking a peek :)

Hi michelle, thank you so much for your advice, I have ordered one, your so right it has brilliant reviews and such a great price also. Really looking forward in receiving the printer. I have started to clean my house to make way for another table for the prining area, so excited! Hoping for a great response.
I want to say what a beautiful painting and such a great subject.
Love the inking clouds.

I am a very happy bunny today, thank you:)

i liked the stylisation of the whole artwork. the balance and the composition is good. just the thin that if you would have submerged the letter prints in the thought bubble the subject would have been more clear.
its a great art work.
keep it up.
