Another lovely brief all the way from Melbourne this time! This was a present from Nina to her husband Todd on his 40th birthday from which was just a couple of days ago!!
The family loves nothing more than an outing on their bikes in the countryside, and this is what I was out to capture in this illustration.
As ever, I was provided with images and details of clothes and bikes to make the drawing as true to nature as possible – including the kids’ favourite toy in their backpack/ basket.
There is a little nod to our family’s origin in Nina’s basket too, as they head off to the beach, with some factor 50 of course… 😉
The background is a gorgeous handmade paper in shades of gold on a sky blue turquoise which to me really fitted the joy and freedom of the great outdoors…
