Since I’m not yet able to post images from the current book I’m working on (A Morning with Gong Gong, Lee & Low), here are a couple little paintings I’ve been doing for fun. I’ve had this Windsor & Newton travel watercolor set for a couple years, but I’ve hardly used it. I decided to pull it out and simply mess about! Though watercolor isn’t as forgiving as my computer, it’s been fun to make marks on paper and delight in happy accidents. I’m hoping these little exercises in watercolor will spill over and help me with some spontaneity in the digital world of painting. Here’s to having fun with real paint!
