I-F: Wrapped

There's nothing more comforting than being all wrapped up in bed when it's stormy outside. (As it was here in Melbourne this past weekend!)

Well thanks again for all your encouraging comments on my brush painting from my last two Illustration Friday submissions. As fun as it was (and as much as I want to continue!) I need to get down to the crux of my dilemma at the moment: which medium will I use for my book?

I've used watercolours for several years now, but I want to incorporate collage a lot more into my work, which is difficult to do with w/c - because it's transparent, you can't paint on top of the collage paper. So at the moment I am experimenting with gouache, hoping it will get me where I want to go....
