Children’s book illustration: The Penderwicks

A summer tale of four sisters, two rabbits and a very interesting boy.

And finally, this is what the final piece looks like:

This was such a sweet little project. I loved the book (yes, I had to read it in order to draw this cover) and I tried to make good use of my newly acquired watercolor skills. The story itself is quite timeless. There isn’t an indication of when it’s taking place, so I took some liberties and decided to play around with acid colors and do something kind of retro-looking. It was a lot of fun.

Lots of love.

  1. Charming, colourful, artsy – altogether, very Penderwick-y! Except that Jane, Batty, and Rosalind have curly hair. But no matter…
    Read the sequels – along with being excellent reads, they give you an idea of when the book is set :)
