Revisiting an old friend

couple
I have been going through my old notebooks and I came across my picture book idea from 2012 PiBold Challenge “Life With The Tree”. It is the story of family life using a tree planted by a couple of newlyweds to illustrate the passing of time.
This is one of the rough sketches for the newlyweds…she looks a bit too “Mumsy” for a newlywed …I think it’s the hair.

Trying to turn a doodle into a pattern. Still need a bit of tweaking but I love seeing how a black and white image can be transformed with a little bit (or usually a lot in my case) of colour.
