This is one of most popular scenes ever, I think. There are thousands of Alices on DeviantArt or Pinterest, and half of them are portrayed with the caterpillar and the mushroom… Well, in a hot afternoon I have made one more Alice and one more mushroom. There are several inks here – umbra, sienna, magenta – and several pencils from Derwent and Koh-i-Noor.
This is my entry for new DeviantsGallery challenge: DRAGONS! I belive very small ones could have survived till today.
I’ve got an e-book lately about J.W. Smith and her illustrations, and this drawing is definitely fan art! No exact copy, but there are many elements borrowed. In original picture there’s a boy playing with blocks at home and watching woods outside. Interesting thing is that letters on his wooden blocks say: LAS and DOM (“woods” and “home” in Polish). Did the famous American illustrator know? Or is it a coincidence? I was truly surprised to find familiar words from my own exotic language there.
Gouache and pencils. Just for fun.

One more scanned today. I have run short of my Fabriano postcard-size paper, so this is definitely last phantom coming out of Liquitex watercolor bottle.
And here is another experiment with Liquitex watercolor.
