agrimony's Hedgepiggy. *laughs and laughs* It was fun! And a little silly, but... I had been wanting to do magnolias, too. I love them. And while I had a pretty good model for how to do one in Chinese style painting, I didn't have a great model for a hedgehog; but it was fun to try anyway. Hee. It's not backed, yet, which is why the weighting of the corners and all that.
agrimony, if you want this, just tell me, and I'll back it and send it. *grins*
It was a little startling finding out that mom's teacher doesn't allow her class to use single shuen, only double shuen, as the water control's easier and it's a lot easier to mount. I might regret it all when I try to mount this only to have the watercolors all run away from me. We'll have to see, especially the reds.
Though... the one that I did for John didn't run at all, and it had reds all over it.
I'm happier with that and getting ready for the Empty Bowls painting tomorrow. The magnolia intrigues me at the moment, enough that I'm inclined to do it for a bowl.
The cherry blossoms just make me happy, I think, they're comfortable, and I need to figure out profile flowers more in the long run. It may not matter in the short, as I'm trying just for the impression of the blossoms, not the detailed 'this flower has all it's petals and that one doesn't'.
