Creating a book, even a black and white coloring one, is a tedious process. One has to learn a lot of interesting things along the way such publishing structure, various computer programs to bring the art into electronic form and to bring a book to life.
As the book that I am working on with the artist Maria Batkova is about botanical flowers, we’ve researched antique botanical paintings in the library archive.
We are testing every piece of art that we create, coloring it with pencils, watercolors, and markers; and, even framing the pieces to see how they will look in the home interior decor.
Today, I found an interesting video from Getty Museum educational channel. It is how in old days the manuscripts were made. Very interesting process. I feel so relieved now that I have computer and all the luxuries of 21st Century.
