Illustration Friday - Fail

(click image to enlarge)
Fail to Fly
This week's theme at Illustration Friday is "Fail". I decided to draw a little girl trying but failing to fly with the birds.

Oh! Her hair and mind is a flying!
Another failing situation turned to a winning one!
Beautifully executed, thanks for showing...

Ursula, This is so beautiful. I really think that you could make a whole picture book out of these images with the girl. (I am thinking a wordless picture book) They have that powerful yet quiet feeling to them.

Yes, her heart is flying with the birds. Lovely illo, beautiful colors and textures.

Great artwork!

Love the simplicity and elegance of this. Also really like that you decided not to fill the background with landscape. To me, it implies, that she is flying in her imagination. Nice work!

I look at this and I find myself imagining myself to be this girl. She is so light of foot and hopeful. She may not fly, but I know that her heart is soaring.
