Autumn days

06 October 10

I was putting off the inevitable, but finally the autumn front page is up. It's been raining for a week, I'm wearing a cashmere jumper and the heating is on, so there was no getting around it any longer. It's painted with watercolour and gouache and will be available in my brand new shop (expect more news on that soon) later this month!

(p.s. did anyone else sing the "Autumn days when the grass is jewelled and the silk inside a chestnut shell, jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled, all these things I love so well..." hymn at primary school? What a weird song!)

I love this illustration! It captures everything I’m loving about this year’s fall trends – elbow patches, thigh high socks, and long, full skirts!

Ahh I love Autumn and this illustration is perfect …. and yes, we did sing that song. It’s complete nonsense! ‘Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled??’ does that even happen? and does it just happen in autumn? and why was it a thingthey loved so well? xx

Oh Kris, that is SUCH a lovely painting! And may I say that I’m totally thrilled to see a hand painted illustration of yours again! I really missed them since I’m a bit old fashioned when it comes to colouring ;D
Anyways, gorgeous as always (:

Oh I so adore your work! I love Autumn too. What determines if you use watercolor or work digital? I’m always curious to hear what other artists say since I am so torn by both. Would love to hear your thoughts :)

This is gorgeous – I want the girl with the Peter Pan collar’s entire outfit!

We used to sing that song too but I’d forgotten about it until you said! It’s funny how many of my junior school songs are still at least a little lodged in my brain. After all, that was a long time ago…

I love all your pictures !! This one is fantastic! So optimistic and cheerful although the weather outside! Thank you for inspiration!

I agree with Alexa- such a joy to see some of your hand drawn illustrations again. Although I’m a big fan of everything you create- in any media! Checking out your blog and website- always cheers me up immensely and makes the rest of the day much more beautiful!

Gorgeous as always Kris! I would really love to take some classes with you. I see some LV in the skirt, which other designers where you inspired about?
Best!
