Childrens book illustrating workshops with pupils of Janet Keen Artist, Rotorua, New Zealand



This is Momoko's first illustration with me. 
 
 It is Derwent Inktense watersoluable coloured Pencils on Water Colour Paper


 Then we glued it onto some thin MDF board.


 This is kyles goldfish illustration. 
Kyle has been with me since he was eight so I have lost count of what number painting this is. 
He's entering it into an art competition. 
He is using acrylic on stretched canvas.

 This is his tropical fish illustration. 
We are concentrating on giving his fish form though modelling light and shade.
I think maybe he could do a trout next, it's up to him.

Blown away by the fish paintings - they really do have a bit of character. Fantastic work :)
