Katie Steel: Volume One

I've just made a book using, which shows the best of my work during my three years a Blackpool. It only lets you see the first 15 pages, so if you want to see the rest your going to have to buy it! I hope you like it!

Polar Bear

Here's a polar bear i've been working on for my '10 to watch' project. It has been painted onto a stretched canvas using alkyds.
I think i need to make his fur more yellow, but am a bit worried it'll just make the painting look dirty, as it will probably clash with the background hues.

more seagulls...

Here are a couple more sketches I did over Easter. These ones have been done on handmade recycled Khadi paper. I have used watercolours, gouache, and pencil.

Seagull Illustrations

Here are a couple of illustrations I did over Easter. They are both the same size, about A3, and done on stretched watercolour paper in watercolours.
I've added some extra detail over the top with a pencil and black fine liner.
I have tried to capture the seagulls' movement, and some of the characteristics they display when interacting with one another.
