Magical swan

Last weekend I shared this illustration on my social media accounts and got quite a few nice comments - I think people interested in children's book illustrations are a rather nice bunch. I started this illustration without a clear idea of where it was going, only with a swan and a shade of blue (because I was doing this for colour collective) as the base. In those cases I just follow my gut i.e I draw flowers and leaves and then add lots of coloured textures one on top of the other until I find a colour combination that I really like. 
I wish I could say that this was a quick illustration but it took me a rather long time to finish - how other illustrators do intricate designs as a warm up is beyond my understanding.
If you want to catch more of my sketches and work in progress follow me on instagram, facebook and/or twitter.
