Peter Rabbit, Images with text

I realized, I never wrote about my Paintings of Peter Rabbit. Here are my layout designs of the images paired with text. They were lay ed out in my portfolio like this. I decided on a simple layout style with text on one side and the image on the other.Then I did spot illustrations for the text pages. (I'm not really sure why, but I originally wanted them to be black and white.) I placed them either under or above the text. Finally I painted the borders for the text pages.

Dinosaur Painting

This is from Last week. I'm making time to build a greeting card portfolio. I'll be sending out my work to several companies. The Papyrus company wants up to 20 strong pieces! That's so many more then i imagined. I loved painting the patterns on these dinosaurs. The T-rex makes me : ) but My favorite is the stegosaurus, I just like stegosaurusess s. I have another drawing of him in a fez. !
