Of Romance and Flowers

This was an illustration I did sometime ago. My colleagues were producing a new series of Fiction Genre Guides and we needed illustrations for the covers. There was no time to hire a vendor to do the illustrations, so I volunteered. This one was for the "Historical Romance" genre guide (you might have seen it in the public library).

For some reason, my wife had this urge to try out watercolour-pencils. This is her second piece (here's her first one):

  1. The watercolour pic of the flowers are very beautiful :)

    I'm looking forward to the fiction genre not know if I will have a chance to see it.

    P.S: In case you are wondering, I'm Princess Fairy, I prefer to use the user name JolinDDiva as Jolin Tsai's my idol.

    I have not amended the blog you had taught us during the course. I plan to make a new blog as soon as I get my new laptop.

    Enjoy ur weekend.

  2. Hi Jolinddiva, you can always pick up a copy of the fiction genre guides from any library. If you don't see it, request for one from the library staff. If you drop by Central Lending Library, they will certainly have stocks.

  3. Thanks alot, Ivan!!!

    Have a nice working week.
