Water - Illustration Friday & Doodle Olympics Update

The topic for Illustration Friday this week was 'Water'. Usually I like to play around with the word to see what I can come up with, but this week has been so busy, I've had my parents come to stay and I've chosen my wedding dress, so I just haven't had space to think about 'water'. So instead I went with my curly waves, that I often use when illustrating water, it was a bit safe, but I do find painting them relaxing.

I'm also behind on my Doodle Olympics/Daily doodle Challenge update, so here it is!

Day 285 of the Doodle Olympics - I can only imagine I was feeling happy about something... I was watching Red Bull X Fighters on the TV at the time, it always makes me happy when they land safely, maybe that was it.

Day 286 0f the Doodle Olympics - Have you ever had the urge to draw something with one really big eye and one normal sized eye? I have.

Day 287 of the Doodle Olympics - A cat hiding in a boat. Isn't that what most cats would do? They hate water...

Day 288 of the Doodle Olympics - A rabbit bum! I was drawing a random fluffy circular shape, so you can guess where my mind went from there.

Day 289 of the Doodle Olympics - Halloween is coming! Although this reminds me more of the scene in Home Alone where he makes it look like there are adults in the house.

Day 290 of the Doodle Olympics - I have absolutely no idea!

Day 291 of the Doodle Olympics - A random bit of nature on a hill surrounded by a city.

    1. Thanks Mit! I have such a thing with bright colours, I just can't help it - one week I will challenge myself to create something with a muted palette :)
