In this session Katherine will share her experiences in illustrating a scene from a story using collage.
Using examples of well-known stories as well as her own short stories, Katherine demonstrates how she works to capture a story vividly on the page. Learn all about choosing the right scene for an image, point of view, perspective, colour choices, character emotion and capturing movement.
Participants will benefit from a range of fun illustration techniques and will come away with a polished individual image.
Praise for Katherine’s picture book, Squish Rabbit: ‘Battersby’s expert, ample distribution of white space provides room on each page for readers to luxuriate in her impressive, evocative ink, watercolor and collage illustrations – and to absorb a small rabbit’s feelings.’ Kirkus Review
