Launch

It's the time of year when all the babies launch themselves into mid air - scary!
I couldn't decide upon the background - which one do you prefer?

Definitely the first one! It's much more delicate, like a silk handkerchief

I sort of agree - if I have to choose! But I love the bold patterns of the second. I'd love a skirt made of fabric with that print.

I love the movement and the colors and patterns! I think the birds stand out better against the first background and I agree with tanaudel. Fabric for the second please :D

It's hard to pick, but I really like how the leaves in the first one overlap. They're both lovely!

I like them both for different reasons, the first one for the leaves and the lovely blue of the sky, and the second one for the branches! They have such a different feel, although the main illustration is the same ...

Cool! I love the abstraction of motion in this one and swept as well.

Ces said...

I like the second one because it makes it more of a challenge for the birds to maneuver themselves out of the branches :)

Fabulous! I get a feel of freedom and joy from these. The colors are so warm. Your work uplifts me (I know i say that often, but it's true).

The crows take to my building every summer and last night it was like Hitchcock's film "The Birds".

Oh..this is so sweet and feels so peaceful when I look at it. Great work, Nicky!
