Timid Jimmy is the story of a young boy who moves to the country and conquers his fears. This, the cover page, shows Jimmy in his city environment. Jimmy lives in the middle house, a Trinity, or Bandbox row house.
The illustrations for Timid Jimmy are pen, pencils and watercolor. Thompson makes his sketches in pencil, and then puts down a wash of approximate color, building very slowly as the paint dries fully between washes. He then pulls out the colors with pencils and outlines are sharpened and finished in pen.PenllynStudio.net
… and here is a detailed view of the finished page.
