A quick update
Right at the beginning of January work started on a new book and I can't wait to post more about illustrating a children's book about bees and share some of the excitement with you!
A new website (Saffron Wildlife Studio) has been set up where anyone can visit, especially if interested in bees, nature and children's educational nature books, wildlife and English countryside and gardens. So, as well as updating my own blog about art, kitchen gardens and garden wildlife, and adding to my blog pages here - and all the social media that goes with it - there will be lots to discover on my new website which I will be updating with Valerie Rhenius, bee expert, author and publisher.
Illustrating a Children's Book about Bees
Progress has been swiftly moving along since January and the book cover is almost ready to submit to The Bookseller Magazine for initial publication.
But until the information can be released, along with lots of draft sketches and progress notes, here's a little taster of the style to be used in the book with an example of an apple blossom watercolour and ink sketch by Claire Murthy .
