Lo­ca­tion: Australia Web:­lindail­lus­ Em ail: be­lindail­lus­ me­dia: Watercolours, gouache and ink Belinda is busy build­ing on a ca­reer at a chil­dren’s book illustrator. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from PreRaphaelites like JW Water­house and the Golden Age Il­lus­tra­tors such as Arthur Rack­ham, Belinda starts her draw­ings with “a ridicu­lous amount of re­search and con­cept sketches.” She then cre­ates her dreamy fan­tasy paint­ings by lay­er­ing watercolours over fix­a­tives, “since wa­ter­colour can be a tricky medium it can take a num­ber of lay­ers to build it up,” she says.

“Some­times I’ll trans­fer the drawing on to an­other piece of wa­ter­colour pa­per or I’ll start do­ing washes on the orig­i­nal drawing af­ter hav­ing scanned it and sprayed it lightly with fix­a­tive.”
