A Cricket Plays Cricket

 Doodlewash Watercolour Challenge

The prompt was crickets so I thought it would be interesting to paint a cricket playing cricket. My other cricket is a vampire cricket.


Firelight and Stars

The Spoonflower challenge this last week was an embroidery template. I couldn't make my mind up between these two but I went with the black and white version. They are 6" diameter to fit on an 8" inch swatch and also so they could fit in a 6" embroidery hoop. The outlines could be stitched or the whole thing filled in. The coloured version is similar although not exactly the same. I adapted some older artwork for this, not sure it was any quicker to do lol

Happy Paint Party Friday, have a great week.
