viv with soap bubbles

Viviane Schwarz just showed me this painting technique using gum arabic, which was a great break from painting the big, daunting double-page spread I'm doing for a picture book. It didn't entirely work the way we thought it would, but it still looks kind of nice.

As for the drawing, the postman arrived today with a copy of The King's Shopping, and I did the drawing kind of in that style. It's a book I really wanted to see because it's illustrated by Warwick Johnson Cadwell (who drew the picture of Morris last week). I'm going to read it after dinner tonight.

I really love the way you've been drawing recently.

Aw, thanks! I'm ripping off WJC's way of drawing the face here, so I can't entirely claim credit for that one, but it's still fun to play around. :-)

I love the fact you can buy that book for £3.59 or £0.01p new or used for £0.01p. You're enormously nice to me here, it's not deserved.
