IF: Old Fashion

I got an assignment this week which fitted into the Illustration Friday theme - Old fashion :) I am doing some illustrations for the old nursery rhyme Three Little Kittens. So here is a painted sketch of the first scene where they have lost there mittens. It is also done the old fashion way - with a real paintbrush and paints :) The pic below is why I paint digitally at present :)When I was out of the room my daughter decided it was time to practice writing her name :) Thank God for photoshop!

Aww bless your little one :) Children are able to fill you with pride and exasperation at the same time I know mine certainly does.

A lovely illustration and I like the version with your childs signature as well LOL.

This is so cute! I love her yellow dress.

How recognizable. I put my drawings always high up on a bookshelf. However, one day when my daughter was young I happily showed my husband a new book on how to teach reading, writing and arithmetic. The tiny super ears of my daughter picked that up and she thought it was a nice idea to show me she was already able to my new book (arrghhh!) A year later I had a good laugh on seeing her messy lines and now I still keep that book for sentimental reasons. So, please, keep your 'joined venture' one day you will smile at that sheet full of lovely illustrations.

Thanks Chibi :) Yes exasperation and pride are in a constant battle:)

@Kelly, thanks for popping by. Yes I like the yellow dress too. A wet on wet effect.

@ Paula- yes I will keep it for prosperity ( or blackmail :) )

@ June - Yes her writing is coming along nicely. she practices all the time and enjoys it, although at times it is a bedtime delaying strategy. I wish the son was soo inclined to practice his.

Your kittens are too adorable. I love the one in the yellow dress, it looks like she saying, I have the slightest idea what happened to them, great stuff. I pretty much went digital for the same reason myself.
