The Barn Yard Bed
Barn Yard Bed | Watercolor, ink, white acrylic
Very pleased to have this piece finished. A friend of mine commissioned me to do it for one of her children's book stories. It's a painting we both have been anticipating, her more so than me, and I'm so happy to have it finished and ready to hand over to her. She's been incredibly patient and awesome. It was a load of a project, so many characters and trying to still give expression across a bunch of animals that are asleep. On top of that, a night scene. I'm pleased with how it turned out too.
Now off to bed, got lunch with her tomorrow and totally looking forward to meeting up and spending some time with her, talking about publishing and life.
