Lickety Split!

I started on a new picture today,  well it consisted of sketching out a few ideas and collecting reference from the internet, I decided I wanted to illustrate the age old favourite 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat' (Edward Lear is one of my fave authors and one of my most treasured possessions is a copy of his 'Book of Nonsense', I researched images by illustrators and felt inspired to do my own interpretation, that and the fact that I'm desperate to draw an owl, and the sea and a cute kitty!

I was just doing some super quick scribbles, when I actually quite liked one of them, I think it was because I didn't feel ready to start labouring away on the intensely detailed version, so I decided to do a quick colour of the scribble... anywho, here tis;

...and the sketch book page it came from
