Heligan

I haven't posted on here for such a long time because I have been working hard on a new project called 'The Sleeping Garden' about The Lost Gardens of Heligan. You can see some of this new work on my website www.sarahdeakin.co

Counting Sheep

After spending so much time on 'Clara' , I decided to have a break and go and draw the new lambs around the farm. So that I can include the work in my project I have created a book called 'Counting Sheep'. Here are the spreads:















At last!


Had a tutorial with Paula Metcalfe and she encouraged me to persevere with my computer generated work. After messing around I had a brainwave and removed the outline, printed out on watercolour paper and finished off with coloured pencil...at last..something I really like! Only another 24 pages to draw up!!
