Sam's book update, another illustration


Sam and his Auntie walking on a windy beach on a cool day, but still the colours are beautiful
watercolour, coloured pencil and pencil

I've done another illustration for the book, of Sam and my younger daughter - yet to go are my husband, his dad an more of his mum.

It's not fantastic but it does catch my daughters brisk walking and Sam's windswept exuberance :>)

Now to think about the text to go with it .......

I really like the contrast between the calm adult posture and movement of your daughter and Sam's youthful energy. :-)wonderful.

thanks :>) I wanted that so I'm really pleased you picked up on her purposeful walk vs his mad gyrations!

I agree-- the contrast just makes the picture. And isn't this one of the things we love about children, the way they leap into everything with such enthusiastic gyrations?
