Color Study


I have been working on a new book. When I create the sketches for the text I take a day or two in between to do color studies.
This is a small sunset study. It won't be in the book so I can show it here. But I will say that in this book I will be using more of a painterly technique than I have in the past. It just seems to fit the total theme so much better.

    I know more about this beautiful illustration than anyone. when this book is published it is going to rival Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Wizard of Oz, Babar etc. I know from where I speak, besides the amazing artwork ( which is tremendous) the story is also from the same genius. This is not flattery, it is a fact! This book will be loved by every child for generations to come! If you could actually know James Barie, Frank L. Balm, A.A. Milne. You Have Ginger Nielson! This is someone to truly admire, respect and thank your lucky stars that you know her!!!!
