Art is what I wish I could do all day, apart from seeing new places.
I still have bills to pay though, and thus it is pushed back to the status of a hobby. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy what you see and leave some comments if you have something nice to say :)

I pulled out my old Fern Hollow books again recently and that prompted me to go to dA again and have a look at all your lovely art. 
I always wonder what media you use for the Fern Hollow illustrations - it's a mix of things, right? Watercolor, coloured pencils, ink/diluted ink? Gouache? Also, how big are the originals? I just love those books. Love

You're right, the media was a mix , just whatever felt right at the time. The originals were the same size as the printed books.

It's really nice to hear that you kept your old Fern Hollow books, and I very much appreciate your kind words.   :)

Thank you John for keeping that door to other worlds still open!

One of my favorite books growing up was a Fern Hollow book. I grew up in Germany, not in the UK, which makes it much harder to come by them.
Just so glad you are on dA too and I am able to :+devwatch: you.
