One problem that I am encountering is that my paintings are evolving, much like a group of studio paintings that I might do for a series. This is a great thing if you are a studio artist, since people like to see an idea progress, but it is NOT a good thing if you are illustrating a children's book. What I am going to have to do is go back to the first paintings and change them so that all of the paintings match. I love how this first painting is so simple. My current paintings are so intricate and bright they make your head spin. At least they are making MY head spin. Still, I am looking forward to being able to paint like this full time instead of spinning my wheels 40 hours a week at my day job.
