Balloon


Just another little pastel illustration today. I've been busy working on a couple of commissions plus Violet & Ted so I feel like I'm getting a little behind with updating my blog. I'm trying though! I saw a really pretty photograph of a hot air balloon rising up behind some mountains so I thought I'd illustrate my own version. This illustration kind of reminds me of a vintage childrens book or something similar - what do you think? 

Enjoy your pancakes today! I'll be making some later, hopefully with some Nutella and golden syrup (not together, that would probably be too sickly even for me!).

  5. Awww, this is such a sweet illustration! I love the stripes on the balloon. Every year we have the Bristol international balloon fiesta so this definitely reminds me of being a kid and looking up into the sky in Summer! Sometimes they come right over my house and one even landed in the school playing field when I was young. ;)

    1. Eep, thank you! That sounds really lovely - I'm not even sure I've ever seen a hot air balloon in real life before! I bet all of the children really loved that! My house was right next door to the primary school field - my dad used to pass ice lollies over the fence at lunchtime! <3 xxx
