Today was the first time Eynsham CC could get a game in - in an age. So I loaded my bike and set off for the field. Its been over 12 years since I've done any water colouring and inspired by my recent rediscovery of my Cotman Field Box...what more excuses did I need?
I did take the face paints down with me to keep the kids occupied, and managed a couple of paintings in between painting scorpion tattoos and wiping black face paint out of Maddy's ears.
I bought some masking fluid recently (curious to see how it worked after observing Graham's watercolours) and its a lot of fun!! The possibilities are endless.
I do think I had the wrong paper though...just 135 gsm art paper which was way too absorbent and when I came to rub off the masking fluid, the surface of the paper came off as well half the time.
These two survived. I had a request to keep them 'cricketerly' if there is such a word. Two empty wickets. The top one was one that James had set up to play with jumble of kids that were down the field, and the bottom one is the pitch at tea time.
July 2020 - the cats are getting sick of me....
