    Some imaginary fish on Tomoegawa paper, for a letter to a friend who keeps koi carp. I use metallic watercolours to give them a fishy sheen

    Thank you Pira :-)

    Yes it's the same paper. Tomoegawa is the company that makes the paper. It holds up to watercolour paints remarkably well given its thinness and light weight. It goes very slightly crinkly when wet but tends to dry smoother.

    Ptero ~ and now that Peanuts theme music is bopping along inside my head Nice one!

    Estilografico ~ Thank-you for your generous words. Art isn't just drawing or painting, as Ptero noted at the beginning of the thread. If you practice bonsai, origami or anything that involves a creative bent then please feel free to share.

    I'm familiar with the Wallace & Gromit productions from this animator, and have heard of this one but not seen it. Now I might have to look it up. Good work

    That's great! :-) Those pastels give a lovely effect. I've not been brave enough to try pastels - I think you need to have a good free & open style of drawing to master them.
    Have you ever tried Caran D'Ache Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels? I really really really want some, but they're pretty expensive.

    Thank Migo, you should try them, it's a mess using them but real fun (even for somebody like me who don´t really master them yet).
    No I didn't tried the Caran D'Ache yet, unfortunately the good stuff is always expensive-

    The folks which master the pastels always fascinate me, it's almost magical what they can create with them.
    I bought Staedtler Carbothello Soft Pastel pens some time ago but did not used them much yet.
    I really have to practice with pastels.
    I like the increadible bright pigments, but unfortunately they are such fragile.
    Also I did not found a perfect fixative yet, the fixative always kill (at least partly) the brilliance of the colors.


    This one I did about 2 years ago testing the Carbothello pens

    Ptero ...I come back from visiting my daughter in Ottawa and find that you have installed an entire kennel in this thread

    Nice parrot too...he's probably in charge of the entire operation!

    I counter with one of the images from my Wilted Beauties series of flowers....(I find fading flowers to be very aesthetically fascinating)
