You might think I'm getting near the end of the book, only few illustrations to go. But in my process I don't create one illustration at a time. I work on all the pictures together. I color the sky on each page. The the trees in the background on every page. And so on and so on.Every illustration is completed at the same time.
I like to add characters that follow the main character through the story. Frog seemed logical. Plus I need something to break up all that yellow. He couldn't be green cause there was green foliage. So being logical - the frog is purple - complements the yellow!

Colored pencils are very labor intensive. It took two months, working everyday to complete these 32 illustrations. I used up quite a few yellow pencils!! ~ Amazon.com ~ The New Adventures of Jeremy Duck by Judy Grupp
