Magical creatures watercolours

Today's set of fine liner and watercolour illustrations are of three magical creatures, which I created for the all-year Inktober prompts numbered 5, 7, and 8. The Valentine's dragon is based on the prompt 'dragonfly', wherein I played with the words so that I could capture a flying dragon (and she is pink because I drew her for Valentine's Day). The fox with the bubbling cauldron is for the prompt 'camping'. And lastly the snowy owl was for the prompt 'remote', as she is flying away from the world, high and free.

All creatures great and small

Hello February! A snow storm is currently raging past my window, giving me the illusion of being inside a (vigorously) shaken snow globe, and so I thought that now would be the perfect time to show you some of my 2021 fine liner pen and watercolour paint drawings. I recently discovered that Inktober is an all-year-round thing (and a brilliant thing at that) so illustration number 1 is for today's Inktober prompt (6/52) "Monster". I opted for the cute interpretation, although I had so much fun doing some of my realistic human profile drawings when sketching ideas. So this is a diplodocus, my favourite dinosaur. Number 2 is a sausage dog, because dachshunds flow so naturally from my hand to the page. And number 3 is a little mouse chef! If you know me well, you will know how much I adore little mice. I am enjoying drawing daily, as I did at the end of 2020 too - what is happening on your art radar right now? Let me know in the comments or over on my Instagram :)
