Illustration Friday: PLAIN


This topic made me think of a book I loved as a kid, Sarah, Plain and Tall. Sadly, I haven't read it in years, but I pieced together this illustration from my scattered memories. Happy Martin Luther King Day to you all!

  9. Very soft and beautiful, especially interesting with the angles, gives it some darker edge, too!

  10. Yes! I hoping someone would illustrate this. I vaguely remember the story as well. You did a fantastic job. The water is great, the colors are a nice combination. Really nice.
    ps: Thanks for visiting me!

  13. This is beautiful - I love how you have captured the colours of the prairie and of the sea - the blue and grey and green that were missing when Sarah tried to draw the wind in the grass! What is this picture done in?

  14. Thanks for the comments, everyone! I'm glad there are some other Sarah fans out there. I just got the book out from the library to re-read, and discovered that it's now a series of 5 (yes, FIVE!) books. Whew!

    Kathleen, most of the work on here, including this one, is done in pastels.
