Watercolour on Saunder's Waterford hot pressed, 140lbs/300gsm.
A detail from an illustration for The Elephant's Child
, from Kipling's Just So Stories
, the book I have just completed and which I mentioned here
. More about this shortly.
I'm told that reproducing the illustrations for this book is proving quite a task, with the colours and textures being difficult to match faithfully. The full view is many times larger than the original to give some idea.
DA's compression has defeated the point of my sharing this somewhat, so here is a link to the same detail
in the proper resolution.
