Experimenting

Time of day: nighttime
Mood: inspired, but hungry
cat: sleeping
husband: surfing (on his computer, not waves)

I'm continuing my experimentation wtih watercolours. I had this idea a little while ago which i was really excited to get out, and after perusing Courtney's blog and folio, I thought I'd try to emulate how she seems to mix and blend colours so beautifully. Well, it failed miserably! Yuk! I didn't even bother inking it.



so try, try again. I like this one better, especially the cloud animals, but now notice problems with the composition.



There needs to be more space between the grass and clouds I think, and also I meant for the boy to be angling down a bit more. I also don't like how I did the hair or hands, and like the grass texture better on the first one. I'll get back to this again some other night. Practice makes perfect.... and third time's a charm! Let's see what other maxims can i throw in there...?
