Rainy day shopping

Inspired by the girls shopping in my home town of Leeds, sitting in a cafe looking out of the window.  This is typical of current fashion and some girls ability to wear mega high heels when they shop.  Yorkshire being as it is, we have a tendency for bad weather in Autumn!  We're just used to it :)

You can find this new image of mine called Shopping in Yorkshire in my Etsy shop where you can get this and any of my other images with 10% off by quoting SKIANDREA10
I decided to colour this image in one of my favourites, black and white with a pop of colour.  I've coloured it with Copics and created a little texture in the background.  On the seams of the umbrella and at the left edge of the image I've used a black polychromos for a little extra definition.

The sentiment was created at the time of printing.  All I've done to showcase the image is to frame it with some red and black card.  A very simple but classy result.

Hope you like my inspiration for today
