New blog header!

This morning I redid the design of this blog. Before, it was just a standard Quintus theme, but since autumn just started, I thought it was appropriate for the blog to adapt to the season, too. I changed the theme (Colinear now) because in the old theme the title of the blog was positioned inside the header design and was pretty much not readable anymore. I also changed the colours to a more autumnal look and – maybe the most noticeable change next to the colours: I drew a header design. Since I want to change it with the seasons, I’ll post it here, too, so it shall not be forgotten even when the next season comes.

The header design was done on The Langton 300g/m2 smooth watercolour paper. I first painted the background with watercolour and and tangled away after it had dried. Last but not least, I added some shading in coloured pencil plus a few accents in golden gel pen. I chose the tangles because they somehow made me think of autumn. They are: Ansu, Bulb Lantern, Cruffle, Minline, Oke, Pixioze and Zinger.

I hope you like it! Let me hear what you think.
