I reached the half way mark! Posting another set of ten creations for the 100 Day Challenge. This set includes remembering two legendary, award winning authors and illustrators. Eric Carle 1929-2021 Lois Ehlert 1934-2021
This set of 4 X 4 creations includes book pages with watercolor paintings. Creating with multi-media makes for interesting and unique art work.
The 100 Day Challenge continues as I create on 4 X 4 watercolor paper every day. The following creations are painted with watercolor. The theme is picture book characters. Painting faces was challenging for me. I stepped up to the challenge and put forth the effort. Most importantly, I enjoyed my time creating.
