Illustration Friday - Racing
It’s the 150th anniversary of the cup this year and we Australians love any excuse for a party and a bit of fun. It’s known as "The race that stops a Nation" and even if you don’t gamble, many people have a little 'flutter' on the cup.
So I thought about the theme and my take on the cup and I couldn’t go past fashions on the field and the tradition of race day hats ....it’s become quite a big part of the day and they often range from the amazing to the absurd. I’ll let you decide which of those categories this one fits into although I’m hoping the former….
This is image has been produced from a straw blown picture I did when my little girl and I were playing with paints one day, I stuck the original underneath to show her humble beginnings because I like it when people show some of the progression of their work. I thought I would give it a go.
Title: Race day fever and it is a Mixed media.
