playing in my sketchbook

I hadn't put too much in my sketchbook for a long while until the girls and flowers i showed recently.....
then i started doing these....
I put down random blobs of watercolor, 
let it dry and drew around what i could see, 
not a new idea or anything,
 i've seen lots of books or blogs where people do this, 
but i hadn't in awhile, and it's sort of addicting and fun. 
Plus i end up seeing and drawing things i never would have drawn that way without trying this, this little fox.
 He showed up in green, sort of fox-like but not really.
 so then i tried him again on a paint chip named marigold. 
So now I have this character, Marigold, the fox. I like him...

Happy paint party friday and hello all at Artists Play room! and hello to the creative everyday people!


  1. I love him. There is something so cute about him. I just want to see what kind of fun he will get into. What a wonderful way to create an adorable character.
