Tea and Biscuits – children’s illustration


I’ve been at it with the pencils again and come up with this;



Watecolour pencils and a bit of gouache. I’ve really enjoyed using this medium, it has a lovely organic, scribbly look to it which I think lends itself well to children’s illustration.

The only problem with the pencils is that the lead breaks so easily, when sharpening (which is often if I’m outlining), it usually falls apart. I have less than half a pencil left in one particular green!

Anyway, hope you like it, I shall come up with something else to paint soon!
