Baby girl is now a year and a half old and it was weighing on my mind that I still hadn’t completed her height chart. I began working on ideas for it in December. The first idea I settled upon (whimsical birds on wires) and mapped out was shot down by a couple of people. Always a bit of a disappointment when your idea doesn’t fly but one friend’s alternative suggestion led me to something that actually did work out better: butterflies and dragonflies.
My original plan was to just do details of butterflies and dragonflies but turns out I couldn’t resist a pond scene. The final result is a bit more detailed than I was originally aiming for but I think it came out okay and not too busy. The definition of the black outlining helped to finish the project.
And then there were three.
