Picture Book Project 2021

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.

When I am not illustrating, I will be in the Art Gallery looking for inspiration. I also volunteer at the National Gallery of Ireland. I also enjoy cooking as well as good delicious foods and wine. I do love good long nature walks.
