Gallop Cover, with oil!


Well, I did it. I think I am done with horses for awhile! I am so excited to move onto different subject matter. Making picture books, and working on the same subject for quite literally years makes your patience and attention level sink rather quickly.

The cover is a full wraparound but the scanner reacts badly to darker, layered areas of my work. I actually used a good chunk of oils on this one. And you know what? I think I am going to be using more and more! It was a bit more smooth looking than the watercolor layer I traditionally use.

ONTO DUCKS!
