The second I saw this book I knew I had to have it and I honestly love every picture in it. I decided on this one because it was Spring-y and about now my new neighbours are planting things.
This is the first time I did the left to right thing, and I tried it all along the bottom and then working up, but that wasn't great because my hand rubbed across the pencils and sometimes that fades it. I found it's better to just work bottom to top and then left to right so your hand never goes over the pencil.
Had fun working on the greens while I explored what I wanted the buildings to look like. That's kinda nice, by the way, to work on one section while thinking about what you might do with the other.
Mapping out colours with washes of pencil.
I love the finished product. It's so great when things come out the way you were hoping. I think the whole book will look amazing when finished. This is definitely one of those books I NEED to finish the whole thing. You know those books? Paper treasures.
