So...as you may recall, this was the page in pencil:
Then, I painted it:
(from now on this is new- promise!)
Next I drew a background pattern:
(heightened contrast again, of course...)
I painted the pattern:
I'm still not finished with the 'crib'- it needs some shading, and I'm still not sure about the background. I do like the combination of colours, I'm just not sure that they're in the right places. My predilection for green makes me want to put the light green as the main background colour, but I'm also trying to include a variety of colours and not use the same colours too many times on too many pages... Still, might do the background again... We'll see.... Oh, and must add the strings to make sure that it's clear that this is a mobile...
