Illustration Friday: 'Parade'

I really wanted to do last week's Illustration Friday but I ran out of days! This friday I painted this as soon as I saw the new word, it's not friday today, it's saturday but I think this is the quickest I've ever submitted!

beautiful Jessie. I had the same problem. I worked out an idea for last weeks but it would have taken too long to do...uuurgh. So parade seems very inviting...

Jessie Lilac said...

Thanks April :)

Roberta said...

Cute... I love ladybugs!

Susan Faye said...

Have some of those ladybugs parade on over to my house--I've got some aphids they need to meet!

Lovely soothing greens yellows and reds.

And the Ladybirds are very Lady like on their parade.

What a party! Great Colours.

I really like this parade of lady-bird bugs.
The colours, patterns and shape all work very nicely together.
(Though you might like to check as I think they should have 6 legs each!)


:o)

Better late than never and the cute ladybugs look they are rushing to enjoy something important.

Thanks for your so touching comment Jessie!

They look very determined... but just one question, which I guess is related to the question "Why did the chicken cross the road?, but this one is : Why did the ladybugs go over the hill, when they might have gone around it ?

Well Jessie, I'm guessing what's hidden in the green... :)And as a comment on your story about searching the right colours...I received on the academy one day of a selfish teacher that I couldn't use colors. If you can do something with some critic like that? Imagine! So from that day on I searched a search till today to combine nice colors...and I'm hoping I learned a lot untill now, not from that women, but by drawing more and more and experience the effect of colors.
We can learn from each other and that's one of the reasons we comment on each others work I think. So you are on the right way I think...and like for this one...there can not be choosed a better color ;)
X Kathy
