Thumbelina & the Swallow
"Perhaps this was the one who sang to me so sweetly in the summer," [Thumbelina] said; "and how much pleasure it gave me, you dear, pretty bird." Such a sad part of the story, but what compassion in her heart to care for the dead bird and wonder if it was the one who sang to her.
This is my first submission here at "Watercolor Wednesdays'. I'm new to children's illustration and hope to share and learn lots through these prompts as it's a bit of a challenge for me with proportions and angles. As well, as much as I love watercolor, I do find it frustrating sometimes with respect to how much more control I have with colored pencils & pen.
Again, thanks for having me ;>
