Dreamy dolphin

Yesterday Curly Girl was in the craft room helping me with her sketchbook tutorial. I'll post that later. :-)

She pulled out her watercolors and painted different colors of blue on a leftover mat board. The water soaked right into the board and caused some of the paper to 'pill.' It made the picture look sort of fuzzy.

Then she made a line on the board, turned it around to show was a dolphin. The lines melted into the blue a bit....which is what she wanted.

It is very simple compared to some of the things she has done but it is neat that she did it the way she did. The darkness you see at the bottom of the photo isn't due to lighting. That is the way she painted it.

Great dolphin! I love the way the background has different shades of blue just like water would.
