One change for me has been working on smooth illustration board rather then my usual textured canvas. I really like being able to add the extra detail without the distraction of the texture and I think the art will look a lot better in the final book after being scanned. I hope to share some more paintings later as the project progresses!

I have been busy working away on my latest book project and want to give you a sneak peek at one of the early paintings. I can't share details of the story but by the looks of this painting you can deduce the subject matter. I am having a lot of fun painting the landscapes along the Oregon Trail, specifically the scenes of western Nebraska and Wyoming. Imagine seeing this rock formation for the first time?
