What to do on a snowy Saturday? Practice your blob animals of course.
For these I start by painting around where the eye will go and then add some type of body. I make the paint very watery and then tilt the paper to see what happens. I don’t usually have an animal in mind when I start. It usually appears as I move the paint around, although sometimes it waits to show itself until later when I start outling.
Here are a few that turned out ok, there were plenty more that were just plain ugly.
