ELLA GAJEWSKA HATS AGAIN

So the hat logo story continues. Like I said "the first attempt" was fun but I failed to notice that it was to be black and white only. This time around I remembered:)

I also got a new picture this time so not only was I starting over but I was starting completely anew which I liked because I don't really care for painting the same thing twice. 

Here's the picture that Ella sent me: 

Her instructions this time were: black and white only, no shirt, very long neck and hat going across one eye. So here you go. What do you think?


I just mailed the original to Ella today and now I'm looking forward to seeing how she incorporates this painting in her store design. Very exciting....

ELLA GAJEWSKA HATS

I love Ella's hats. I have actually painted one of the of her hats in the past and blogged about it here:) 

This time she's contacted me to paint one of the pictures featuring her in one of her hats so that she could use it as her logo in her shop banner. She sent me two pictures - one of what she wanted me to go by and another of what she wanted it to look like style wise. Here they are:


So I got really excited and pretty much immediately got to work and this is what I came up with:


I have to say I had a lot of fun doing this and I really liked it. There's only one problem with it. Ella asked for me to only use black and some kind of way my blond head completely missed that "small detail" when I used red and yellow:)
On the flip side - I get to do another one:)
