I've joined a great group called The Meandering Moleskin and it's gathering momentum now, as we each paint some pages in our Moley and then pass it on to the next person on the list. At the end, we will each have our own Moley back, filled with each others art.I've noticed that others have painted one long picture, covering their allotted pages, but I wanted to paint several different, smaller ones, as I had so many ideas to fit in. I've discovered that I like painting small fiddly pictures and so I'm going to force myself away from this for a while and go for something larger and more challenging!
My first picture was based around Merlin again. Well, he is an endless source of inspiration :)
Unfortunately, I had a few problems with the paper, as it really isn't suitable for watercolours. The paint either slides off, or instantly soaks in showing all brush strokes, good or bad. In the end, I used pencils as this was easier to control.
A curious faery,
and a faery kitty with a goth Angel! These last two were inspired by a photographer whose pictures I came across years ago, but sadly his name escapes me, otherwise I'd link to his work.
As always, please respect my designs and please don't copy or reproduce them. Thanks :)
