MONOCHROM OR POLYCHROM

Older children’s books often contain many monochrome illustrations. Before digital printing, the conversion and printing of color images was much more complex and expensive.

For me the monochrome illustrations have a special magic. Sometimes I find it difficult to decide whether to paint monochrome or colour. For illustrations for very small children, I would always choose color.

Looking at the two pictures now, I can’t decide which of the rabbit pictures I like best. As I have only painted them for my own pleasure, I don’t have to make a decision. Which picture do you like best?
