In the last couple of weeks I’ve been very busy illustrating two classic fairy tales for a Chinese children’s publisher. I finished illustrating one of the stories yesterday and decided to take a little break and do some watercolour sketches.
As I’ve already written before, I am a huge fan of Charles Reid and try to learn from his books whenever I can. I really enjoy painting from black and white photographs and today I’ve chosen a photo of the lovely Emilie Flöge, the muse and close friend of Gustav Klimt, my favourite artist.
