Shades Painting - Illustration Friday

I am so excited to be participating in my first Illustration Friday Challenge. The topic for this weeks Illustration Friday was "Shades". So here is my interpretation of "Shades".

Here is an up close view.  This painting was done using watercolors and then I took a black watercolor pencil and did a little bit of outlining to make some of the details stand out. I love how it turned out.

My Inspiration
This painting both reminds me of my mother and my daughters. My Mom has always worn big sunglasses growing up, even when that wasn't the style. I guess she was ahead of the game as far as fashion goes. So in honor of her, I had to draw my shades larger than life. I also wanted to draw the illustration of the girl with long hair like my daughters. They both have beautiful long, thick hair, that hits their waistline. I hope to be able to continue to participate in Illustration Friday.
