Illustration Friday - topic: small

>> Tuesday, November 29, 2005

This is my Illustration Friday entry, this week's topic was "small". I decided to do an illustration for Hans Christian Andersen's story "Thumbelina", a story that I have always wanted to illustrate. This is the part of the story where Thumbelina escapes marriage to the mole by flying away on the back of a swallow.

This is my first Illustration Friday entry, so I made some extra effort. I think doing it was/will be really good for me, because it's an opportunity to do something without any rules or restrictions. Sometimes I start to forget what I would do if I could do anything at all. I've added the Thumbelina illustration to the top of my blog because I like it, and maybe to remind myself about that.

The swallow's colours are superb! I like the expression on Thumbelina's face. Nice choice of illustration for the topic :)

This is so colorful and full of energy! I love the story of Thumbelina (I actually illustrated her for the IF topic, Float), and this is a great part to depict. Your watercolors are beautiful...I'm looking forward to seeing more!

What’s the difference if she's very small?
When her heart is full of love she’s nine feet tall!

Your color choices are nice and fresh. You also captured the movement of the flight very well.
