Earlier this week I started reading a book by Carla Sonheim called "Drawing and painting imaginary animals" where she describes many different ways to create abstract and funny animals. One of the techiques involved splattering several large blobs of transparent watercolor over a sheet of paper, then blow on it or turn the paper to make it run, and then make an animal out of whatever shapes and patterns emerge.
I tried this on four 3x5 inch papers. One I used as a test to try different techniques, but the remaining three turned out pretty well. Just look for yourself:
And here's a (lousy) picture of the three together, fitted with simple paspartours of cardboard.
But that's not all I've been drawing/painting...
I've made a drawing that's going to be a christmaspresent for my mother whom has a very soft spot for cats.
