Now for all those possibly's, I am still tickled pink to have been noticed in the first place. It has injected a new enthusiasm into my drawing. I have stared to experiment with different styles, images and even colour. Yes I said it. Colour.
We had tucked away, a wee box filled with all sorts of goodies. Coloured pencils, water colour pencils, oil and chalk pastels, and a smorgasbord of paints. After a bit of a play, I have fallen in love with watercolour. It means I can still do my line drawing but put a hint of a wash over the top. Well that is the theory. The only problem is, I am a coward. I have no idea where to start.
|Henna style doodle that I am playing with. Lot of fun and very relaxing.|

|I have no clue what this is, but I coloured him with the watercolour pencils.|
The paper didn't like it so much.
|Draw with a mind to add colour, but then too happy with it as it is to risk ruining it.|
|My first splash with my new paints.|
Finally on a side bar, I finished my last commission, (for my dad) and managed to make five limited edition prints too. And guess what, I used colour. Watercolour pencils are fantastic, easy to use and easy to control. Now, these are instagram pictures so you will have to wait until they are done at the frames for the actual photo's but I am super stoked with how it turned out.
|This is Dad's picture. I love it, and feel very brave when I look at it.|
