#NatureDoodlewash (Loosely, I hasten to add!)

We’ve kind of found ourselves a little lost on the Nature Trail today. Knee-deep in snow, which is nice and refreshing for the time of year, we come across the most rare of rare creatures: the Icewolf. Occasionally seen in Cheshire, they are normally found around, strangely, unused stations in the south of England. Legend has it they are trying to explore the long abandoned buildings, but they are always thwarted either by security guards or security fences. But, they persevere!

In actual fact, Icewolf is a blogging buddy, who ‘challenged’ me to paint an Icewolf in a comment on a recent post. I find it hard to resist a challenge, particularly one that involves me sploshing a little water around. I’ve recently gotten into creating actual ‘paintings’ (at the moment I use that term very lightly, but I’m enjoying the process so I’ll stick with it!), so this was one challenge I had to have a go at – time permitting or not!

As in my last Doodlewash, I used watercolour pencils for this creation. I thought I had used a lot of water as well to blend and spread the colours around a little more watercoloury, but looking at the lines on this that doesn’t appear to be the case. However, there are areas where the watercolour effect is evident, so I’m happy with that. One of the eyes is a little dodgy, but on the whole I’m pleased with this result. It’s the first Icewolf I’ve ever painted, or pencilled, or whatever the term is. Next time, I’ll get the paints out again. I’m liking the watercolour pencils, but I’m not really sure if it falls under the watercolour umbrella properly.

  1. He he HoooOOOWWWwwwwLLL!! Now that young Tim is a truly impressive Icewolf! Very lovely painting and personally I think the eyes are most becoming… 😆😊 We are endeavouring to be seen more frequently in Cheshire but that seems to be an effort just as well thwarted as the efforts to get into disused Eurostar train stations 😉 In fact I would say disused and forbidden places are much less formidable than trying to appear in a Cheshire

  2. ….in Cheshire is lol Perhaps if you could paint an Icewolf or two in Cheshire that might open a few doors do you think? ☺ This one is beautiful…In fact on momentary reflection I think I should re blog it! I haven’t had chance to get my planned post ready to go so this is surely the perfect time 😀
