a splash of watercolour = some funky, weird creatures


This is kindof a bit of a late WOYWW as I visited my artist friend Graham on Wednesday, and took my watercolours with me.  He's done some more work on his studio since I last visited...


It's such a warm and welcoming place...


... full of inspiring art...


I, meanwhile, just splashed some watercolour around on a couple of pages in my sketchbook.


Then hunted for some 'beings' amongst the paint splashes aka Carla Sonheim (Drawing Lab).


My favourite is the little 'thing' leaning up against the central spine of the book.


It was this large bunny I found first though.  I just LoVe this technique, there's no way I'd be able to invent these imaginative characters any other way!

Awesome studio! I can see why you'd love to go there.
What a fun, loose technique finding the little critters. They made me smile.
Merry, merry Christmas!! :)
