ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ PERSPECTIVE


Taking a page or two from My African Bedtime Rhymes, by Brettell Hone, published by Shamwari Publishing, the first illustration shows a fly resting on the water.

Soon to be chased by two young trout he finds a safer resting place above.

Wow Ginger! The detail on that fly is fantastic. The texture and the colors are so perfect! You simply amaze me how you can take a thing like a fly and turn it into a wonderful work of art. Love your "perspective." (the artwork and your outlook on life :o)

Hya Ginger, there's a wonderful luminous glow happening with these two, Bonnard used a similar luminous green in some shadows. Must write that in my notebook! Thanks for sharing this work.
