I’m working on some particularly difficult illustration ideas today. One is for the ‘Scary Stairs’ page. With today’s exercise, I remember, now, why I left this project for so long. I was not confident that I could complete the required illustrations. As I remember, I had not been pleased with a couple of the prototypes and how they were turning out. I had finished most of the ideas on a story board and actually completed the art for five of them in their finished watercolor form. Where I ran into a creative snag was on the more imaginary pieces. It’s one thing to recreate an actual scene, but another to artistically record an imagined thought or dream. I had been stumped.
This last picture was kinda fun, since the window light was shinning off the wash. Just added it for fun! Not showing the final painting--wait for the book!
