I can't begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying this study. Thank you Deedee for being the host for the first two weeks. It has been a pleasure getting to know you. I've often wondered if people with 1000s of followers still get excited about a new follower, or notice beginners. If you are a person of character, like Deedee, you do. I wish she taught next door to me!
This weeks study made me look at picture books more closely. I could see how authors and illustrators worked together to bring precision and detail into their pictures and words. I chose three books to try and find various techniques highlighted in this chapter.
|Do you have these in your collection? Ferdinand by Monro Leaf illustrated by Robert Lawson|
Olivia by Ian Falconer One Tiny Turtle by Nicola Davies illustrated by Jane Chapman
|Ferdinand just sat on a bee! Did he like it? What do you think? Poor Ferdinand. The|
"recruiters think he's going to be a prized bull for the bull fights! I'll use this for technique number 13...Crafting details of expression and gesture.
|I love the rich background of these illustrations, but also the details from nature. Come a little closer...|
|This crab is even smaller than the tiny turtle!|
|Do you think Olivia sings quietly? Me either! Again, Ian is able|
to give the illusion of sound with a simple illustration.
Thank you Growing Kinders for hosting this week! I can't wait to link up!!
