Catching Leaves by Ine Spee

This is a drawing inspired by a moment I shared with my boyfriend last Autumn. We were walking along a path which had lots of trees on both sides, and leaves were constantly falling down, blown around by a soft breeze. And we started playing a game to try and see who could catch a falling leaf first. I won. =P

Cardboard underground covered in crumpled paper that I painted over with coloured ink and ecoline (liquid watercolours). All characters and objects drawn and painted on normal paper with coloured ink and ecoline and then glued to the background. =)

I am a former Illustration student who finished her Master degree and is now looking to take her love for art further. I hope to someday be able to do illustration as my profession and to make my living that way by becoming a children’s book illustrator. I love bright colours and cute images, because I don’t think there’s ever enough of it in this world!
