I was very excited to be invited to illustrate the cover of the SCBWI Bulletin. The painting is on this months publication, which just arrived in the mail today.
Here is the painting.
As I mentioned in the interview (one always accompanies the cover design), I often scan my illustration before I start the watercolor painting. I use the scan of the illustration to do a detailed digital color study. Once in a while it may occur that I like the study better than the watercolor painting itself.
The watercolor painting made it as the final this time.
I included the digital study below.
