In other news I have recently completed this illustration for 'Paisley Rabbit & the Treehouse Contest'.
31 x 39cm watercolour and gouache
Here Paisley is meeting the site manager and architect as they, and the construction team, begin work on building Paisley's treehouse.
As you can see, I started out with a cobalt blue underpainting, in the hope all the shadows would remain cool which would create a nice contrast with the warm spots of dappled light. I must confess, once the watercolour painting was completed, I did introduce some pastel cobalt gouache to the shadow areas on the trucks.
