Book Illustration Lesson: Matilda Mouse's Garden

Here is an illustration Alicia created from the book 'Matilda Mouse's Garden' by Heather S. Buchanan (author and illustrator).

Alicia's work in progress

The book looks as though it is delicately painted in watercolour and the detail is applied with watercolour pencils. Alicia decided to use pastel and watercolour because we were working on pastel blending techniques. It was a good art session because when I went home it was unfinished, but the next week she told me that she spent the whole afternoon on it.
