This is how it works: I make an illustration, copy it and fully paint the copy with watercolours, after which the colour studio (in my case that of Vittorio Leonardo) translates that colour example into digital form. This takes much time, around two months per book is devoted to the colouring alone of around 45 plates, but that’s how I work.
This lot shows the process in practice: the colour example and the final print.
Colouring: watercolour on copy, A4, signed.
print: full colour on cardboard. A4, signed
The winner of this lot will also receive the special print, made for this auction in an edition of 150 unnumbered copies, in colour in A4 size, signed by Henk Kuijpers (see final image).
The original of this print can also be found in this auction. See the final lot.
