ENCHANTED FOREST by yaamas ENCHANTED FOREST by yaamas
The first illustration I did for a Children's Lullaby book that I'm currently working on.

It's called "Enchanted Forest"

I created it using watercolor on Arches. It measures 9x12 inches.

I've seen a lot of magical trees protecting children and wayfarers, but this group of trees reaching out and making a cradle for the little girl is original and absolutely charming! And the sweet expressions on their faces is very nice, too.

Hello! ^^ Your work is truly mesmerizing! As a child, I really loved animations that were drawn in your style! And your art brings that nice, warm feeling when reading a storybook for children , that has enchanted and unique pictures! Your paintings seem, in a way..alive! Love them!
