This is my next adventure! I’m illustrating my story, Secret Under the Apple Tree. I’ve mentioned this on my about page, and now I’ve started the expedition! I’m very excited to be sharing this project with you! I’m planning on self publishing it. I’ll let you know what company I use. This first illustration here will be my front cover. Any tips on illustrating or publishing would be very appreciated!
After outlining my sketch with pen, I added watercolor. The color is very vibrant! And the hard textured paper seems to cup it and hold it ( at least, that’s what I imagine its doing). 😉 I’m not sure what paint I’m using, because I got my pallet from an estate sale, which still had left over paint inside. But from the other paints I got from there, I figure its Winsor and Newton, or Grumbaucher. I never used those before, so I was very pleased at their quality! When your just starting out, you can’t afford expensive paints. I feel very blessed to have all the supplies I need now to create my illustrations!
