Twelve Dancing Princesses

Twelve Dancing Princesses

This piece took me AGES, but it was so much fun. It measures almost an entire sheet of watercolour paper (30″ in width), so I went big with it. I totally indulged in the costume designs, since the fairytale focuses a lot on the fine clothes that the princesses are wearing. I would love to illustrate the entire tale one day.

 

Happy Easter

I hope you all had a nice long weekend. I don’t care much for Easter as a religious holiday, but have always loved all the springtime and cute bunny imagery (and the Cadbury cream eggs I used to receive, ha!). I have lots of Easter decorations in our house up year-round because they’re too cute to put away.

It’s definitely the first sign of spring in Westport; pretty soon the tulips and irises will be blooming in my garden. It never gets old!

Here are a bunch of new pieces. I went through a couple weeks lately where I needed to flex the compositional muscles. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy drawing for Papillon Press cards but it’s also nice to get some actual backgrounds in some illustrations.
