Thank You Picture

Hello again so soon, I just finished this picture for a friend. She knitted a lovely pair of fingerless gloves for me and in return I painted this picture. It's been few months since I've painted so I felt a little rusty, but I'm happy with the outcome. I'm gonna get stuck into my painting though to refine me technique. 
She told me she loves the colour mustard, bicycles and I was telling her about how I want a pipe (I don't smoke but I think it's a cool little prop) and this is was the result.
I started by doing a rough in illustrator so I had a guide line and then painted freehand. This meant it got a little rough in places where I had to fix up mistakes, but I think that can add to the character of the picture and no one can repeat those little imperfections. (well thats what i'm going with :) )
I'd love to hear what you think.
ta ta for now x
