  1. You did a great job of capturing the night scene. I love how things are lit by the flashlight. It highlights the kids faces so youcan see the characters. The other flashlight pulls you to that side of the illustration with the kitty and the moon and clouds pull you to the top. Nice circular movement! ;-)

  2. Cheryl - Love the flashlight illuminating the map. You really got that part of the illustration to stand out! Well done on the nighttime obstacle.

  3. Wonderful!! I love how you painted the light from the flashlight! The expression on the little girl's face speaks of surprise and adventure!! Super Job--I am sure children would love this illustration!
