Gurdy & Marmy travel together..
Happy Wednesday !
Continuing with the development of my picture book, today I tried to experiment using several combinations of mix media. For this particular illustration, Gurdy & Marmy is seen together heading into the forest. I thought about creating a vivid texture for the trees. In order to create a dramatic scene, I use newspaper cuttings, green colour paper to do a collage. I added black and brown ink to highlight the trunk and some of the branches. I also tried using gouache for the leaves. For the figures, I decided to use watercolour pencils. The general background is covered with inks.
