Illustration Friday - trail

canada commission 2

girl commission 2


These are two new watercolour commissions....

the first one I worked on for a client that has people moving from England to Canada....now if that is not one long trail over...I don't know what is....this is a welcome in true Canadian form....my submission to IF this week....

and the second one is a girl portrait in the middle of this amazing trail leading up to a Spring garden filled with daffodils and greenery....

Happy trails!!!

Okay, I am a hockey FIEND and I think the welcome one just flat out ROCKS!!! (of course, they need a two-four with it for a real hockey welcome, and one of Don Cherry's Jackets...please don't throw me out!)
Good work--is it strictly watercolor?

XXOO!!

Beth Niquette said...

Oh, Diana! These two paintings are just beautiful! Are they watercolor? I have such a hard time with watercolor. lol

I especially loved the first one, but equally loved the second.

(grin)

Wonderful illustrations both.

Both of these are fabulous, Diana. I am particularly drawn to the Hockey piece. Hockey is so popular in our house. Have a great weekend.
