Saturday morning 29.3.2014

On Saturday I spent time playing with watercolour paints in purples and greens, first painting some mandala type patterns

Mandala3

These patterns came from a recently bought mandala colouring book, I scanned in the images then edited them in Photoshop using the magic eraser tool to remove the slightly grey background, I then reduced the opacity of the lines and printed them onto watercolour paper.

I also attempted to paint the Cerinthe plant which inspired this colour combination.

It needs a bit more work, I think I’ll add details with watercolour pencils and ink..

Here are some bird’s heads which I drew and painted last weekend.
