12 x 9 watercolor, watercolor pencils, wax colored pencils
On my babysitting days, I work on two things - drawings like the one above, and pencil studies of fairytale characters. The latter is because I want to illustrate a book for little baby Whit. I figure I have 3 years to do it! I have never drawn fairies, elves, giants, princesses and the like. In my research, I found books illustrated by Brian Froud. His work is fantastic and so immaginative! He has several books. I bought one called The Goblins of Labyrinth. I also checked out some books from the library and am teaching myself by copying other artist's work as best as I can. Because of copyright infringement, I will not post these drawings. Once I am comfortable with drawing these characters, I will create my own for my own book, which I will use a self-publishing software for printing books for yourself, not for sale. I have to admit, I am having FUN drawing these things!
