Just Atmospheric Silhouette Stuff

Very very sunny!

Here are some illustrations I did...indoors. 
I quite enjoy creating silhouetty-like stuff, You can create very eerie atmospheric art by simply layering shapes and receding colour (very very easily!). The piece right at the  bottom was experimental, just having fun. It was inspired by a print I saw somewhere. It was of a painting of one of those kitsch rural scenes of countryside, lakes and trees. I wanted to include a Fox somewhere, (and text) but it just wouldn't fit into the composition so I made a whole new one - The Fox Mum. It's quite a nostalgic piece as it reminds me of a cartoon I used to watch called 'Farthing Woods', with a family of foxes and other woodsy animals like badgers and Wolves.
