Bear Family

Today is my dads birthday and I made him a watercolor painting with collage elements and a tiny bit of colored pencil. Stars and moon are painted / splattered with gouache. Again I tried to get nice structures into the backgrounds, using not too much water and working the watercolor with an almost dry brush, or using my little water spray bottle. Still a lot to learn with these background structures, but it´s fun!

I made two versions of it in Photoshop after scanning it. One is not far from the original. The other one got blue, as I wanted it to look more like “night”. I think I like the colors in the almost-original better, but the blue one has this dreamy atmosphere. Hm…
