Five illustrations made for an unpublished children's book, The Petrel's Bride, retold by Kate Caswell. The story is an Alaskan folktale involving a magic petrel bird and a proud young human woman whom he takes as his bride. The media I used for these illustrations were watercolor, bodycolour (Chinese White opaque watercolor/white gouache), and colored pencil.
