South of Ratho towards the East Pentland Hill – Experimenting with watercolour and acrylics in a watercolour Moleskine
Those who are cruel to snowmen should be afraid – VERY, VERY AFRAID!!!
(playing around with mad ideas) Ink/watercolour on a watercolour Moleskine
Winter Scene, Evening – Ink on a watercolour Moleskine
The temperature is about -4C in this scene which is almost tropical compared with the overnight low of -8C. This group of trees is well known, locally, for many badger sets but the clever wee devils are probably fast asleep, well underground. The doctors say I will probably regain the feeling in my legs in a few weeks when all of this snow will be a distant memory.
The scene at the end of our street today. Reminds me of another poem
Winters came, the snow has fell
Wee Josie’s nosis froze as well.
We Josie’s frozen nosis skintit.
Winters diabolic, intit!
This was done with ink and watercolour on a watercolour Moleskine. The “border” was created by my attempts to hold the page flat with low tack, masking tape in an effort to stop the page cockling when wet. It seems to have worked but was a bit of a hassle. Does any one else have this problem?
Playing around with some new character designs for an upcoming comic project.
