STRONG
























Well as you can see I got carried away this time around. Inspiration thanks to all you fellow bloggers. I looked through my work and realised I hadn't done any watercolour for IF for a little while. I couldn't stop drawing and then ended up with two pictures. I drew these in pencil first and then drew around with my black artliner. I then printed off onto watercolour paper my sketch and had fun colouring in with the paint. Watercolour is not my speciality, I find it a hard medium to put onto the paper. I was going to use inks but changed my mind, maybe next time.
Presently I am off work, returning in two weeks time. I am reflecting that I hope not to lose the space to enjoy my own free expression with my art.

These are very clever, and quite nicely done! What a good idea to sketch them first, then print them on WC paper to paint! I'll have to try that, as when I sketch on WC paper, I get it all smeary before I paint it, then I can't get that clean look your work has!

Your pictures move. No, seriously, the sway around and make funny faces at me. I love them, they are so vivid. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.
