When wedding bells ring, I always get excited!
April's traditionally a busy time for me as the wedding season approaches and people are looking for a unique gift to give the happy couple on their special day. However, it makes a nice change when I get asked to illustrate something a little different.
A few weeks ago I was commissioned to create a portrait depicting married life; more specifically one that paid tribute to a couple's journey from meeting at Glastonbury Festival, to their lovely new home in the countryside, where bluebells grow just outside.
There was one snag though... depicting an entire music festival would detract from the family and make the overall appearance cluttered. I had to find a way of introducing a subtle nod to the festival without it overpowering the peaceful setting of their new home.
Here's the initial sketch and final coloured up artwork (including a Glastonbury tent in the background, entry wristbands and of course... muddy wellies):
I love a good doodle on the parcel!
