I decided to post this watercolor for the Monday Artday theme "Sleep". It was created for an educational publisher for a booklet entitled "Deanna's Doll". This project was such a thrill for me because the editor gave me a lot of creative freedom in laying out the illustrations for the story. I had used my daughter as a model for Deanna, so that always brings another special aspect to the project. There is something so peaceful about a sleeping child.
Another project I am working on is an entry in an illustration contest. While I am very excited about the idea for the illustration, I am struggling with the perspective. I have a few roughs completed and need to complete a final sketch, if I am happy with that, I will try and post it for some commentary before working on the final. The deadline for this contest is VERY tight, so I may not have time to get it online before the finish, but I promise to at least post that when its done.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit. It is so uplifting to read the comments sent from other creative types from all around the world. Have a great day!
