I decided to use a discarded book to sketch in. I hope this is the right place to post these.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/02-Jul-2014/143438-Palomino_copy.jpg
Watercolour on old book page.

Beautiful horse! Going to be doing this throughout the book?

Oh yes. I like painting over the text...adds interest.

This is a perfect place to showcase this. Love the horse.

These are great! I want to hurry and try watercolors but I need more foundation work.

Great bird head.
Chewy, just get the watercolors out and experiment. Best way to learn what works and what doesn't. Just be mindful of what you are doing so you know what you learned in the process.

These looks so interesting over the text in the book. I like these! The fish is my favorite so far.

Continuing in the bird portrait line, this hornbill caught my eye. Pen, ink and watercolour.

Very cool idea! A way to make even the least classic Classics, Classy!

Eileen, great pages! I'm glad I finally had some time to come over and catch up on some of what i missed. I love these, especially the hornbill!

Oh wow! Hornbill and cassowary are incredible. Love the people too, the juju man and the man with face paint are both so well rendered. Cool fish too. This book is turning out brilliant! I love them all and I'm in awe of your watercolor skills, spectacular watercolor and pen works.
