Now I Lay me Down to Sleep (II) detail

This is the second of three pieces for the Plunket Art Show...I will post the third tomorrow.

When I was young I remember being mesmerised by the art of Brian Wildsmith in his book Mother Goose - A Collection of Nursery Rhymes. I still have my looks pretty well read. I keep it in my studio & reference it at times for his use of colour. I am still captivated.
