After many years of watercolour love I’ve recently purchased my first batch of gouache paints, and to get used to them I’ve been working on a little series of original paintings that are hopefully going to be sold through a local art framers. Here’s the series so far!
Since I was a little bean, I’ve had a dream to do picture books. I couldn’t imagine a more amazing job really, drawing pictures that bring amazing stories to life, weaving dreams and pictures. I’ve had fun doing some drawings for self-published author projects, but this week I got some rather amazing news. Through the 52 Week Challenge, I had won a competition the lovely author Tania McCartney ran, to illustrate an upcoming picture book. Whoa! Excitement! Amazement! I thought I’d share a couple of illustrations I created for the submission, and hope to share the process along the way. Thanks Tania, Anouska (publisher) and the lovely artists from the 52 Week Challenge community for being the dream come true fairies!
