Eeeeh! I got to paint a bunch of hedgehogs last week!
Usually I sketch out very basic shapes lightly with a soft pencil which I rub out later but this time I used WATERCOLOUR PENCILS!!! How didn’t I do this earlier? The marks disappear as I paint so I can be super messy 🙂
I filled in my hedgehog shape with water and splooshed in some sepia, yellow ochre and cerulean blue. Apart from the black ink and white highlights I only used these three colours. Oh and a sprinkle of salt to see what it would do.
Happy speed painting Sunday that I just made up 😊 I've been making hedgehogs for the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust which has been a joy! Expect stickers and prints on my etsy shop soon x #hedgehog #warwickshirewildlifetrust #nature #speedpainting #watercolour #makersmovement #onmydesk #kidlitart #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #illustrator
These hedgehogs are going to the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to help explain how to help these critters. Find out more about their excellent work here.
I ordered new hedgehog stickers and this time my sticker sheets will have teeny snails and cute leaves on to. I can’t wait for them to arrive 🙂
