What fun to try my hand at painting some tiny mice scurrying around in a poppy field. I started with putting masking tape around the edges of the paper. Then I put in a lot of the grasses with masking fluid and a fine brush. Next I started painting in the vivid poppies with watercolor. And the background, and the little mice.
Next I removed the masking fluid....what fun!
Ripping off the masking tape was tricky but fun too. Then I really felt I needed to put in more detail in pastel and I really wanted more vivid color with the poppies...so I grabbed my pastels and went to work. Enjoy them! Squeak squeak
