Here is a series on the unfinished illustration, which will eventually be of the children planting seeds. This will be important in the story later on. A complicated picture, and only half done. But it is a beautiful feeling to paint this – I am painting my garden! This is interesting, because, in the summer I feel my gardening is creating a picture, but now I am creating my garden on paper by painting. I often have to refer to my summer photos, or if I have nothing, Google images.
Outside we still have 4 or 5 feet of snow!!! So gardening in my illustrations is lovely!
