Milo Searching Through the Garden

MH16and17The delights of gouache (and the dangers of not doing opposite illustrations on the same sheet of paper) – when I put these two paintings together for the picture book “The Midnight Hare” I found that in both of them Milo was clutching his chest in a heartfelt manner, so I changed this on the left-hand page, in the process of which I found all sorts of details that I hadn’t finished properly.  I must have scanned it too early. The richness of the colouring on the left-hand page rather bleaches out the other painting, so I may have to add to that too.
