My Head In The Clouds – Part 1

When I was a child, I liked to lie on the soft green grass and look at the clouds in the sky.  It was fun to find images in the clouds with my friends.

This watercolor painting reminded me of those carefree childhood days.  It looks a little like the sun is breaking through the clouds, don’t you think?

I started to outline the color shapes with my black micron pen (size o2) and look what appeared:

watercolor cloud - a dragon

A dragon!  Do you see the eye in the top left corner, inside the orange shape?  It looks like its mouth is open and smoke is coming out of it.

When I turned my paper:

watercolor clouds - a map or anteater

I saw a strange looking Anteater with a bent nose.  Do you see its pink head in the upper right corner?  Its tongue is reaching out for an ant.  I looked up Anteaters online – boy, are they a strange looking creature (kind of like this one!)

I suppose it could be a map too!  What do you see?  I’d love to hear from you!

Wishing you a day of sunshine and fluffy clouds!   🙂

  5. In the middle photo at the bottom I see a bent little old man walking down a hill with an amazing sky above him. Maybe the whole universe above him. But he’s looking down and oblivious. Do I need therapy? lol
