in living color

It's funny, when I got home tonight I thought I didn't have anything to post...just a few scribbles. But, I added a little watercolor and voila!, I ended up with some little vignettes I'm pretty proud of. Funny how that works.

This is great! Do you use water color paper to do your scribbles?

lovely little pictures, well done. you have a very good touch with the watercolours, which they say are very difficult to work with!

Actually Heather these are on the cheap thin pages of my sketchbook. I try to paint rather "dryly" with the watercolor, but the pages still buckle. Luckily I'm able to edit the wrinkles out in photoshop.

Adam- If you haven't tried them before, I strongly suggest using watercolors. I think they are really fun...especialy if you aren't too concerned that the finished product be "perfect."

I agree, very nice, no matter what side thay present people are always interesting to see and draw, just these small sketches and you still get a sense of their character

These sketches are just fab! I love them, they colour you added must have brought them alive. I love the colour you used on the middle one - it is just perfect. I think my favourite is the bottom one, brilliant. I wish I could do this...

They are all super but I love the last one! Is that watercolour you have used? Looks so strong, almost like a marker. I really like the effect.

Thanks so much for your comments! To answer Felicity's question...these are indeed watercolor. I think the color appears so vivid for two reasons. 1) Because I was painting on bond paper
