Illustrating is my second art passion, painting being my first. Next year I am participationg in an art show featuring art for children. I need to start planning some paintings for that. So I am doing some illustrations on paper with my favorite colored pencils. These are my new "balloon kids" with big round heads. One of my goals for this year was to work on new children's illustrations for my portfolio - so not only will I have ideas for next year's paintings, I will have some new work for the portfolio.
BUTTON BUNNY Color. I added color, acrylic paint to match the painted background peeking through the coffee filters.
