Illustration Friday: Hitched



OK, here is it. My third attempt at a watercolour illustration. Don't laugh! I'm hoping I get better the more I practice!

This was the first idea that popped into my head. Hitched because the couple have just got hitched and because they've hitched a ride in the beetle.

I'm sure there must be better ways to upload but I have a very basic scanner so this is what it uploaded like although it looks different in real life. I wonder how people manage to upload their pics so they look like the actual painting?

you did remarkably well for a first timer! I like that it is a yellow love bug like Herbie

Very cute! I would never know this was only your 3rd watercolor. Beetles are just so darn adorable.

As for the scanning, I use a free program called paint.NET which is very like a watered-down version of PhotoShop. You can adjust your image settings like contrast, brightness and hue. On the other hand, your scan looks fine to me!
