I recently found some more beautiful old childrens books at the local op-shop. I always think I should teach myself to paint/draw like this, they are so lovely. The colours are always so cool, I guess this is the old printing process and a bit of aging too may-be.
I haven't read this story yet. That green dress is very pretty. " The Strawberry Fairy" Nursery tales related by Aunt Lucille (Mulder)
I like how the fox is always bad but also quite cool, this one has a pretty groovey out-fit on. The pants are rather fashionable but I'm not convinced about the jacket.
Alice in Wonderland, an Oldhams All-Colour Book.
these illustrations come from a A.A Milne book "A Gallery of Children". There are so many beautiful drawings. Flash-backs to child-hood...
