“Jack and The Beanstalk” Work-In-Progress…

As I work my way through my favorite fairy tales, I finally started sketching “Jack and the Beanstalk” this week.  Due to my limited time/fast-paced timeframe for each illustration, I really don’t sketch before I start a painting.  My usual process is drawing the composition in pencil on the watercolor paper from the image I see in my mind.  I tend to work from the idea/inspiration at that given moment and add details, items, poses spontaneously.

I also noticed that I am not the patient artist that carefully sketches the entire composition at once.  I like to paint and/or ink a small area before I ever even sketch another section.  It must be an Aries thing…
