Blog Banner Almost Done

{Watercolor, 2009}
This is my blog banner so far. I tried to do the lettering in watercolor but it wasn't working. I still need to add the title and mess with the color in Photoshop, but here is the raw watercolor.

Edit: I finished it up by eliminating the background as suggested by my fellow illustrators in a critique blog I belong to. I wanted it to be large and welcoming. I hope you all like it.

The new banner for your blog looks great. I do think taking out the background was a wise choice. The text pops out against the white and catches the eye immediately. The puppy really balances out the composition too.....and is too cute. Great work!
