I made a start on Friday. I find the first bits of colour both exhilarating and very scary. What colour should things be? There are so many to choose from! Will I mess it up and have to start tracing all over again??? Eeeek!
But unlike later on, when the colours of things are established, every step here is breaking new ground, making creative decisions.
I'm starting with the endpapers above, as they are just character studies of the bears really, so a chance to get a feel for them as a foundation to the rest, and start a bit at a time, without tackling everything at once.
