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.
