How Rainbows Are Born?

Below illustration is requested by a parent, he wanted an artwork for his daughter when she turned to 4 years old.  Quite often I take inspiration from nature. I love to imagine/illustrate things what we can’t really see but are important part of the different natural processes. So this was also the case in the theme of the work, though with a little sprinkle of fairytale. We all have been taught that rainbows are born when sun rays hit the raindrops and the white light is broke down to color spectrum (raindrop works like prism). But what if that is not the whole truth?  The work zooms into this event imaging Raindrop-Girls who are creating the rainbow.

Below you may see different stages of the illustration from the drafts to finalised piece.
