Art For, WHEN THE WIND BLOWS

I’m happy to share some of the art for, When the Wind Blows.

This project forced me to stretch artistically.  Some of the challenges…

-getting the ocean surface to look right from various perspectives
-gaining some understanding of the inner workings of a turbine and depicting the important elements in an “abbreviated” way so young viewers can comprehend
-painting electrons :-)

WASHDAY Art

In an effort to reflect the tone/setting/time of this story, I chose to give the art a feeling of memory.  I felt the illustrations should represent a fond recollection–light and form viewed through the gossamer filter of time.  I was careful to allow colors to merge so that edges are defined not so much by variation in hue or value but by the pencil marks that peek beneath layers of translucent paint.
