'Having a Lovely Time!'

My project is based on words that I thought evoked what people often write on postcards - 'Wish you were here', 'Having a lovely time', etc.

I chose the word Lovely as it is a happy and playful word. I made some initial sketches and after a little research thought a script style of lettering would suit the feel I was going for.

At the moment I don't have  access to my laptop with Illustrator on it, so I have had to improvise with my materials. Once I get my laptop back I'll finish the project properly!

I finally chose a design that I liked.

I then made a few refinements - moved some letters closer together, further apart and fiddled with the stroke weights using a pencils and tracing paper.

This is my final design - until I get to a computer that is!

For the background I chose a summery/ice cream theme - here is my inspiration. It includes a t-shirt that belongs to my daughter, covered in rainbows!

It was difficult to handpaint the final image using the materials  available to me - poster paints. (My art materials are in transit with my laptop!)  But I am actually quite pleased with the result!
