The Making of "Mildred"
For those of you that don't know, I've been working on a children's
book called "Mildred's Mistake". These are the finishes for that
book. This is my first experience writing a children's book and it's
taken quite a while to get to this point.
The first finished panels for "Mildred" were done in watercolor and
pen and ink, but they were a bit too pastel in feel. I've darkened them
up to give more of a feel of mystery that I think fits the story better.
I also changed the medium to acrylic and used a larger canvas
which really freed up my brushstokes.
"Mildred" is now out in the world and being sent to publisher's. I'll
keep you posted on what happens and new projects.
