As a girl, I loved rainbows. Something about the colours and how they are made captured my imagination, and I loved to colour things in the order of the rainbow just to provide myself with some eye candy.
After featuring rainbows in so many of my stories, I decided to draw this landscape of a rainbow shining brightly over a hill, freshly drenched with rain, and now getting a little bit of sunshine after the storm.
The path seems to be interrupted by the hill, but it in fact continues on to the village in the distance. Because of the colour of the path and the rainbow in the sky, the picture could have a Wizard of Oz touch to it – ‘follow the yellow brick road somewhere over the rainbow’!
