The weeks are whizzing by - I swear somehow we've been set to 'fast forward'! On Monday, I finally finished the spread that's been hanging around for ages:
Here is the 'running away' spread I started on Friday, as it looked come Monday night:
I then had to leave it, as this is my first brush with Mum and Dad and I wanted to choose their colours in the context of their major spreads, set in the living room. The kitchen decor too (lower left door) is impossible to second-guess. The bears are not finished because they are 'hand resting' areas to access the parents without smudging stuff.
So, Tuesday morning I started on the background colours of one of the living room spreads:
I thought a blue room this time - not done that yet. It's like being an interior designer, choosing colour schemes and even designing coordinating wallpapers and fabrics! This is how it looked by the end of Tuesday:
It takes ages, planning all the clothing colours too, bearing in mind not just this spread, but how they will occur in other illustrations I haven't done yet.
By the time you read this, I'll have spent another day on it, so I hope it's finished! I'll let you know how I got on at the end of the week.
