How were your illustrations used? :
Book inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
I created this to illustrate the text in my picture book, Catching Flight, that reads
"They lift you
and spin you,
swirl you
and dip you,
reveal a sparkling view,"

To complete this I used watercolor, colored pencils, and gouache on hot press paper.
