Colour At Random Play - CARP

A night at work and I was still excited to get in and muck around with my watercolours when I arrived home. I popped myself on my bed and decided to give a whirl at colouring a carp in the Japanese style. I suppose giant goldfishes could be considered to be a member of the carp family.

I used Kaffe Fassett's Needlepoint Source Book: Glorious Inspiration  for just that, inspiration!

This is actually tattoo art on a mans' chest - Carp from The Japanese Tattoo by Sandi Fellman 1986.

I am now starting on a floral splash of colour inspired by one of Kaffes tapestry chairs.

Here's a progressive photo shoot with my  phone camera so some of the photography is a bit blue but beggars can't be choosers. I just have to wait until my birthday for a new camera.

Back to play time and colour fun. Show you the finished product tomorrow
