Venice painting

I've been away on holiday to Italy and had a trip to Venice. It was probably one of the most incredible places I've ever been to from the canals, boats, ancient architecture - the place is so interesting to see. I just fell in love with it's beauty. 
I was looking for a present to take back my friend, I didn't see anything other than masks (which I didn't think she would of liked) and was going to buy a painting of venice as there are many artists there BUT then I thought to myself why am I buying art when I am more than capable of doing it myself. So here is the finished (suprise) piece I did for my friend. She absolutely loves it and is now hanging on her living room wall

Yet again I've been away far too long from my blog. Sorry! but I have been away on holiday so that's been my excuse. Going to get back into drawing again by continuing illustration friday so in the meantime heres some pictures (Not many) I did while I was away on holiday. As much as I love my paints I never think it's a good idea to take them away with me anywhere as you need lots more equipment so I used pen, china marker and conte sticks to try something a bit different.

Illustration Friday - Refresh

Refresh for Illustration Friday this week.
Refresh makes me think of a few things water and feeling relaxed and feeling alot better. So this week is a picture of me lying on a lilo from last summer in the pool. Being in the sun and relaxing generally make me feel more refreshed.

I'm away on holiday this week so I cant wait to be all refreshed again :)
