Illustration Friday-Baby


quite a straightforward one from me this week - though please take note of my Brooklyn brownstones in the background, even if they are a shade of olive green.
FW inks and Ecoline inks on Daler Bristol Board - lovely smooth surface.
Did this for Woman and Home magazine - the article was actually about the pros and cons of having a baby when your other children were already quite grown-up. Think some might call that a "mistake"...there is a 7 year gap between me and my sisters, which I am sure was wholly intended! :-)

Totally wonderful! And the brownstones are great; I'll try to follow you from now on. I'm waving at you across the Firth of Forth from Haddington.

This is very pretty, great colors! I read once about the illustrator Brian Wildsmith, especially British people long so much for tropical sunshine that they have a tendency to imagine their world in the brightest colors. Whichever is true, lovely colors! Want to see more!
