Watercolor Play

Are you familiar with the website deviantArt?

If not you really need to get over there and check it out, it is an great place and if you need something to do to kill some time this is a great place to do it. I am simply amazed at the number of truly talented and creative people that exist all over the world.

I always find inspiration on the website and since I am still searching for my own style, checking out and playing with other styles is a must, not to mention fun.

This past week I stumble across deviantArtist PixieCold and was taken with her "splash eye" watercolors, so I used one of her photos as a reference and created my own. She has also posted a wonderful Splash Eye Tutorial on YouTube: How to draw a Splash Eye

Here is her photo:

And here is my attempt:

This was done in a large Moleskine watercolor portfolio with a limited palette of Sennelier Aquarelle using only Cinereous Blue, Sennelier Yellow Light and Opera Rose.
