Happy furry being

Furry being. Watercolour and coloured pencils on watercolour paper. April 2012, Ulla Hennig

I am participating in the April monthly Class in the watercolour forum at WetCanvas, and the subject is “fur”. So I had to think of anything furry. Somehow the image of a happy furry being arose in my mind, and after a rough pencil sketch I did it with my watercolour pencils. The size of the paper is quite small – about the size of a postcard – and so I had difficulties with painting all the hairs. Note to self: Buy a thinner brush and keep your pencils pointed!

I hadn’t thought of the background when I did the furry creature. I then added the branches and the blossoms/leaves/fruits. The last step was to work over it with my coloured pencils.
