Shoo! said the old man, but Hoko just sat there waiting patiently.

I have been experimenting with using simple line drawings with block colour. I think this approach could work well with picture books for very young children and I have enjoyed exploring this way of working and will continue to find ways of using this method as a form of visual narrative.
I met this wonderful animal in the middle of a thunderstorm at London Zoo. As I crept into a deserted stable I saw this stunning Okapi. He had such a gentle nature and I was mesmerised by his beautiful coat. After painting him I realised that watercolour in the middle of a thunderstorm can be a bit of a challenge but I made it home with the paintings intact!
