So I was tidying up my desk and there was this scrap of paper that I’d used to do a quick crackle paste test on a few days before and it was too interesting to just chuck in the bin.
So I tore the excess paper off, glued it onto an art card and put it to one side to dry. No plan for it at all.
Then I was looking at it the following morning, turning it around, and there was the vague shape of a sheep-like critter… and what with the gold and the crackles and the wonky outline, the more I looked at it, the more convinced I became that I’d created a medieval dragon sheep. Now I just had to release it from the crackle.
I took a black paint pen, defined the outline and drew in an eye. Then I painted the background black and added some grass and foliage. A white highlight in the eye and it was done. I could have added more embellishment but I am getting better at recognising when it is time to stop.
It is ridiculous how much I love this found critter 🙂
