Daisy, Sam, and a very nonplussed pug appear in today's "Colour Me July!" sketch.
I'm using the brushes in the Procreate App on my iPad Pro to add colourful washes to these sketches from my 'Sketch A Day In May" challenge.
When I worked in Borders Books, I would sometimes be relegated to the kids department at night, to tidy up after the daytime mayhem.
Now, there is hardly a soul who ventures to the kids dept after 8pm, so it was a great chance to study different illustrative styles of the children's picture book section.
It was during one of these 'studies' that I came upon the work of Edward Ardizzone. His delicate watercolours for his series of books starring the eponymous 'Tim' are a treat for the eyes, and I'd urge you to check them out.
This is a wee link to a wikipedia page about Ardizzone.
Have a creative day, and I'll see ye tomorra!
