Fineliner and Watercolour Mouse

Another simple fineliner and watercolour fusion, this time pulling inspiration from a small brown mouse.

In this piece I have introduced more watercolour pigment amidst the greyish fineliner, which when water is introduced kicks up these clouds of murky colour.

I’m really enjoying the spontaneity of the fineliner pen. After the watery clouds dried overnight, I went in with Indian ink and white pigment to define certain areas like the head and whiskers trying not to over do it! This colourful mouse now inhabits my shop.
