Squirrel, Rabbit and Doodlewash

This is from an A3 sketchbook, ink drawing, watercolours.







The Doodlewash challenge drawings are in a tiny book by comparison. 4"x 4"

Day 3 Gingerbread

Day 4 Bells. 
I painted the background blue but then decided I wanted it darker, but I think I prefer blue after all.

Gnu Postcard Art

I thought I would have a change from the drawing and painting I have done recently and do a digital postcard. The gnu was from the Naturalist's Library [book]

Clock, Jug and Cow also Doodlewash 23-29

A3 sketchbook, ink drawing then watercolour. 
I got the idea by looking at a clock, jug and ornament on my mantelpiece. I used a plastic stencil for the shapes in the background.

Pretty Parrots and Doodlewash 21 and 22




The parrots were painted in a large A3 [11.7" x 16.5"] sketchbook, there was a lot of bleed through from the other side of the page. The doodlewash paintings were tiny in comparison, the sketchbook measures just 4" x  4".

Floral Painting

A page from an A3 sketchbook, cartridge paper. The paper is not brilliant and there is some bleed through from the other side. At one time I never used to paint on both sides but for some reason I did in this book. I started with an ink drawing, painted with watercolours then doodled on top with a white pen.
