I've posted a lot of photos of paintings in progress on this blog over the past couple years, showing the progression of sketch to finished painting. Recently I thought, why not make a little imovie of the same thing? So I put together this clip showing one of the paintings from Priscilla and the Hollyhocks.
What do you think? Can you see enough of the image? I had to make it small so as not to take forever to download. Does this give you a good idea about how a painting develops? Sometimes this can be a hard thing to explain with words. I also put the video here on my web site.
You can see a close-up of the finished illustration here.
REMINDER: This Saturday is the first book launch party for Priscilla at The Wellesley Booksmith at 1 pm! Come join the author and I to learn about the making of the book in person. More details here!
