Postbox Fairy

Put it all together, and what have you got?

This isn't the culmination of my illustration work for Viridian, Vermillion, Alizarin, but it is the first picture which recognisably illustrates a scene from that story.

It's a charcoal sketch, scanned, and then coloured digitally in Paint Shop Pro. Given that this is the first time I've ever coloured anything digitally I'm really rather pleased with the result.

(I originally just scanned the sketch in to have a record before painting over it in oils, but I thought I'd add some colour to see what the balance of colour would be and before I knew it, I'd um...ended up with this!)
