This Summer I worked on a lovely editorial piece for the Happy Newspaper - a great publication with a mission to share and celebrate positive news in the world, designed and produced by Emily Coxhead.
The theme of the July issue was Opportunity and I had the joy of illustrating a lovely piece of writing about choosing your own paths in life.
I painted a forest scene with various paths and footsteps within the setting, taking inspiration from the article. I worked in my usual process which is watercolours for the first layer and gouache paints to build up the detail.
