This is from one of the very first book commissions I have worked on. Hedgerow Capers by Sandra Mitchell. I wanted to create a bit of a retro feel with the characters and had Beatrix Potter in my mind but with my colourful take on it. I am a huge colourist at heart and always try to use my colour palette to create a happy vibe. I created this with mainly traditional mediums of a combination of pastels, pencils and watercolours and then painted the sky in digitally.
