I've been doing a short course about children's book illustration.
This week we painted a watercolour picture from The Owl and the Pussycat
(or else our own story). I did the bit where they danced by the
light of the moon.
I'm pretty new to watercolour so I learnt some new techniques.
One was to use a candle to make the stripes on a cat.
The other was to use a dip pen to do the outlines because you can
do it wet-on-wet to make it go fuzzy. So that was fun and
I'm pretty happy with it. I'm not sure now whether I want to do
the rest of the story now or else do my own (a love story between traffic signals).
