IF - Welcome



This is a personal project I started a while ago... and only got back to now. Since I am looking to get into children`s books, but didn`t have much to show in that area besides for textbook illustration, I decided to do a series of illustrations based on the fairytale, "The Old Woman and the Wood". This is a fairytale I watched as a child (anyone remember the retro "Grimm Brothers Fairytales" series?)
In this scene, the damsel in distress is welcomed to sleep in a tree unlocked by her true-love-in-disguise, a white dove. I am looking forward to working on a few more scenes... when I have the time!

Lovely and serene! I like the contrast of the monochrome blues against the warmer colors.
