So here's the finished easter image, done with the help of my six year old neighbor Ella who was kind enough to model for me!
I'm experimenting a bit more with my use of space. One of my favorite illustrators, Lizbeth Zwerger is fantastic at using white space and big areas of emptiness, something I've been trying to o a lot more. There's always that sense that the white space needs to be filled just because it's empty. So here I thought I'd activate the edges and make the image less about what's planted in the middle, as so often tends to be the focal point in my images. I'm anxious to experiment with this way of working more.
