Day Dreaming




This is a mixed media piece for a children's book I'm working on. Not sure it will make the final cut; it's a mix of pastel and acrylic paint, and I'm not sure on the style? Is it too tight? Feed back much appreciated.

  3. What are you insecure about with this piece? The only thing I'd definitely work on is the lower right corner. I don't know what the atmosphere is like in the text, but the boy's expression feels solemn to me.

  4. Thank you Saranna. Yes the right corner does still need finishing, and another couple of bits need to be touched up too. I'm very worried that I'm overworking it, that's been my criticism in my work, that things get too tight. Also I need to see how the other spreads in the book work out, and whether this will fit. So many things to think about! ;)

  5. Sometimes if I feel I might overwork something, I give myself a time-limit in which I know I won't finish the piece -say- an hour. After an hour I stop and I decide the next day if I continue working on it or claim the piece to be finished. You know, if you have days to work on something :) A book sounds pretty intense to work on!
