Watercolored title page

The front and last pages (folded in the middle)

I watercolored what will be the front piece and end page.  I am debating going back and putting sky into most of the bigger landscapes.  Originally, I thought that I needed to leave the space white for the words, but upon reflection, the writing should be easily visible through the blue sky and I think the expanses maybe need some color.

Any opinions on that?

Watercolored

I have watercolored the book images in.  I was a little worried about the paper warping since it is just thicker mixed media paper, but it went pretty well.  I think the sheets will flatten nicely when squished into the scanner.  It is a fold in the middle book so these are really 2 facing pages each with writing on one.  I forgot about a title and end page, so that is left to do.

A New Project – Something I’ve Never Tried Before

This is something totally new for me.  My dear daughter-in-law asked me to draw a children’s book with her words for my grandson, about to be one year old.  It will be a square book  so these are two facing pages each.  I did a pencil up of each page and let her approve them.  Here is the penned version.  Watercolor goes over the ink.  So far, so good.
