Big Bad Wolf...
Haven't done any painting in a while, but saw an interesting technique for watercolour described by Linda Kemp in a book called
Watercolor Painting Outside the Lines a positive approach to negative painting
and thought I'd have a go yesterday. Was supposed to be off with the canoe club in Wales, but I pulled out because of snow so it was fun to do this instead... It's only 8"x6"approx so not big. I love the serendipity of watercolours. Only used two colours: chinese orange and indigo for the trees. Then thought the painting needed a focal point so had to put Little Red Riding Hood in with a dash of cadmium red. Where is the Big Bad Wolf?

wow, love the picture. the big bad wolf is lurking within all of us, I suspect: but he's not an evil child-eating monster, just that self-censoring voice that says "you can't do this because.... (insert pet ahngups..)"
