Patchwork Meadow is a Great Place to Read

Okay, I know I said this last time, but it's HOT here! When I'm painting at night, I can't even open the windows until 9:30 or 10:00pm. On the other hand, I believe I'm sweating off tons of calories.

Here's my current paint palette. Since I'm painting more complex, smaller things, I need more colors!

I finished another wall in the mural. I didn't paint the characters before, so I had to come back and finish them. Some of them I had planned ahead, but some characters I improvised.

I'm going to move on the next wall, but I may come back and add another character or two.

More Work Done on the Magical World

Even for a designer and illustrator, the pull of summer can be strong enough to tear me away from my computer. That's my excuse for not posting for a while, but I HAVE been painting the magical world mural! It's getting a little more time-consuming because I'm getting into the details of the characters and smaller items. Here's a few photos of some working details.
