This is another watercolor that lived for a long, long time in my sketchbook before seeing the light of day. This one is based on a tale I once heard from my grandfather when I was 15... Generally speaking that's what I like about grandparents; they know oodles of interesting stuff we don't even imagine. *lol*

I used a little white goauche (gouache?) to create some of the effects in this painting...

Goauche is cool... how come it doesn't have it's own section within Wetcanvas?

Comments are welcome!

Wonderful vivid colours, but IMHO I think the mushroom cap and the sky are very similar. Perhaps the sky should be darker? :)

these must be some of those "funny" mushrooms I have heard about. Great colorful work.

Crazy colors indeed. I love it. It has something disturbing about it-a lot of energy coming from colors and from composition.
