A big mouse moves house.
A blog post about this painting.
Mice are nice. Return of the green doodle. What a messy doodle page. I drew around it in white because otherwise it would be almost impossible to find. Doodle camouflage.
I took the doodle into a bigger sketch which I used to plan out the picture and also to test little painty bits. This was then traced onto watercolour paper. Mainly for the purpose of having a clean drawing to work on. Apparently rubbing out can affect the tone of the watercolour. Don't know? Its not been a problem for me.
This is the original scan of the final drawing. I did quite a bit of tweaking in photoshop. Is that cheating? Well it certainly sorted out some issues. That's the end. Thank you. You may leave now.
