Illustration Friday & Sunday Sketches – Swept Away

Illustration Friday Sunday Sketches

I was inspired in bed. I woke up early and lay there thinking randomly. Came up with this idea for the Illustration Friday challenge ‘swept’. Also I’d like to submit it to Sunday Sketches (even though it is more painting than a sketch) because I’ve failed to show up with anything for that challenge for several weeks running. I did sketch the house, does that count?

Swept away – March 2011, watercolour on watercolour paper, approx. 285 x 200 mm.

I had several technical difficulties with this piece as it is a very new medium to me. I made some dumb-ass mistakes, but I’ve learnt and hopefully won’t do them again.
