New Work

Working with a fixed color pallet this time, this is really helpful when your final artwork to the printers. Even though these are not flat colour application (i.e they are not digitally done) I have hand painted the tree trunk, leaves etc(actually everything except the yellow of the birds is pigment colour) and there is a lot of variation to the green and grey anyways, but having a pallet helps to stick to the family of colours and the printer has a better idea of the colors that you are looking for, even if you are not doing digital illustrations. Anyways if you can, always carry your final artwork (hand rendered hard-copy) to the printers to match colour, and if you have no control over printing or your art editor just does not bother- it's helpful to hand over the color pallet at-least.
