The Illustration Friday topic this week is urban so I found this lovely city girl riding her bike. I love the thought of a bike ride through the city - getting from place to place quickly but being able to see all the sights and hear all the sounds. As usual, I tried to experiment with technique a little since I'm still trying to find my style. I sketched her and then outlined my sketch, erased the pencil marks and then painted. I'm happy with how she turned out. Not bad for an hour and a half of work. She is also wearing an emerald green jacket which happens to be Pantone's Color of the Year.
