Portfolio Club – Circus Illustration

I’m joining #portfolioclub one illustration assignment a month. This month’s theme is circus.

Here are some pieces which were developed from the drawings in the middle of this story.

My favourite outcomes are this first piece and the final illustration.

And here’s my final illustration. The big top blowing its top with fast paced acrobatic skills and death defying endeavours.

I’m going to call this piece done. My circus themed #portfolioclub illustration.

It’s been an interesting brief to work on and I’ve learned a lot.

Tulips line the garden and colour and energy radiate from the creative studio at the top of the house.

Saw this pretty poppy on our walk yesterday morning so I decided that it would be my subject for an appliqué embroidery. It’s not quite finished, a little hand sewing to follow, please pop back to see the completed work.
