So what do you think?

I would have prefered to do this in block colours rather than the watercolour effect but it’s what the brief ordered….

Matching the repeat up was a total PITA- it has taken me probably 3 hours to arange it properly and colour it and re scan it and then check that it still matches.

Should I do another one? I can change my submission before next week if I change my mind…. it just feels a but vintage-in-a-yucky-way 70s style cotton to me. That’ll be the watercolour effect.

    I’m being honest since you’re entering a contest (plus I always am anyway!), I like it but I think it’s too vintage and not in a modern way, like you mentioned. The drawings are cute but the watercolour makes it so wishy washy. Maybe just a repeat of the windmills with washes of different colours?? I’m not sure… it just screams vintage and I don’t think that’s what they’re looking for. It’s a tough one!

      I’m working on a Bridlington themed one as a possible replacement since I’ve learned A LOT about Illustrator these past few days 🙂
