Mouse Guard Alphabet Book – “A” full-page illustration
9″x9″, Watercolour and acryla gouache on Arches 140lb cold press paper.
“A” full-page illustration painted for the Mouse Guard Alphabet Book. The theme for this piece was “Apiary Keeper”. This was the very first painting I did for the book – I had a wonderful time giving this old mouse a soft side. Keeping these bees happy takes patience and a gentle touch, and this fellow looks after his friends well.
