A fun watercolor with a bunch of little extras! I started by lettering the name and filling it in with watercolor. I saturated each letter and pulled the extra color up a few different times with blues and purples. Elyse loves dogs and music, color, and of course, owls. Since it was around October, I was heavily influenced by sugar skulls while sketching the owl. I filled the pencil sketch in and outlined it using ink and watercolor. I kept the other elements and shapes light and dreamy. I splattered white ink over the letters of the name to look like stars and fill them in here and there. I also added watercolor drops to fill in spots and draw the eye around the image. I grounded the whole design by adding a light frame around the name to define the space.
