Children's picture book watercolor illustration for
Miz Fannie Mae's Fine New Easter Hat
This watercolor painting as the illustration for Miz Fannie Mae's Fine New Easter Hat, a children's picture book written by Melissa Milich, published by Little, Brown and Company in 1997.
In this story there was a loving father, mother, a girl and her brothers and sisters, a beautiful easter hat with flowers and four bird eggs.
When I was working on this book, that was about October, and the apple trees were blossoming in the apple farm next town. Our son was about two years old at that time, for many times I brought him to visit the apple trees, sketched drawings and took many picture of the apple trees and their flowers. All those reference became a part of this watercolor illustration.
