This was a bit of a stretch for me. I usually tend to draw the dark low saturation pictures with a burst of bright colour somewhere to draw the eye, never cuckoo-crazy-all-over-the-place bright colours, that's just scary! D:

:EDIT: Omigod! I gotta DD!!! :noes:!

:EDIT EDIT:: =P a couple of people asked for a desktop sized version so [link]

We're an art manufacturing company and are in need of watercolor and acrylic illustrations of animals, landscapes, florals...
If they are done in procreate or Photoshop they must have textures to make it seem traditionally hand painted.

We pay $15-$20 per piece with FULL rights to it. 

They must be scanned at a minimum of 8.5x11 300dpi

If you are interested please email me lola@allpopart.com, I'll give you more feedback on what we need. 
Examples of artwork here: www.wayfair.com/decor-pillows/…

I love how you didn't make the differences in colour look like something that the artist decided to do sparatically, the colours flow, and that makes it all the more amazing! <3
