Children's Book Illustration Number 12 Begins

Now that I am back from taking care of my mom, and the young author of Moonlight Memoirs has returned from summer camp, book illustration twelve is underway.

I thought a WIP (Work in Progress) of this miniature painting would be interesting. Maggie's children's book features adorable mice and other magical woodland animals as the characters. Stay tuned for the final publication!

Step "more"...a little more color, a few more layers. This one is a challenge. I think I need a break! :)
