I found this pin on Pinterest a week back about watercolor blob art which i thought was a great idea. Then, i visited the link to the pin and found the website elvie studio. She shares creative art and craft(mostly art) ideas and is an artist. After looking at her blog, I looked at her post about Watercolor blob art which turned out so cute. You can turn just a blob of watercolor into cute birds and other farm animals just with a pen, some watercolor paint, a brush, some water (to rinse the brush) and watercolor paper!
I first made small blobs with watercolor. It has to be quite dilute and light in colour And because i put lots of water in the paint, to dilute it, i used a water colour paper with high GSM (300) so that the paper won’t become wavy. I bought this pack of paper from an art supply store in Panjim (Goa). It’s called – Artoriam. It’s a really useful art supply shop.
Then I outlined the blobs with a Micron Pen.
And drew beaks, eyes, small wings and little birdie things…
And volia! You have a cute little bunch of birds/chickadees!
Hey, but I made more too. I got inspiration for piggies, bunnies, mousies – all from elvie studio!
I made the mousies next. To get the mouse shape you have to make the blobs a little larger and longish. Then, once your blob dries, slowly outline your shapes with a micron pen. Then make the whiskers, curled and long tails, and a little nose!
As you can see, my mousies are all huddled together in a circle, so I added a little cheese piece in the centre to show the mice were gathered up because of that tasty bit of cheese!
Next came the piggies. I had to make fat blobs for the pigs. And then made a nose, eyes, spring-like tails.
And, hey, how could I not make bunnies!
Make big longish blobs. Draw the long bunny ears. Then make a mouth, eyes, and a cute little tail as you want. And you’re done!
So, there – my farm with a bunch of cute animals. And, need I say – Sufiana was so attracted to these paintings. Didn’t I tell ya – she loves animals!
