Yes. At long last. The idea is that the creature on the bottom is using all the other creatures who are stored within eachother to get the butterfly-esque insects at the top. So even though it has no arms, no legs and is basically an almost-inanimate blob, it has its ways...

The medium is watercolours on watercolour paper, size A4.

This was quite an epic undertaking, even if it may not entirely show. I had to get this out of my system before I started anything else. I really pushed myself trying to make everything as perfect as I could, attempting fresh patterns and unconventional colour mixes etc. I pretty much did one small section a day, so that I would return with a completely new state of mind for the next bit. I really hope you like it!

Thank you! I realised somewhere around this time that I really loved unusual patterns and colour combinations, and India has so many of them.

Love the attention to detail and the idea is so creative and original. The look of the torn paper around the border adds a nice touch too. Awesome!

Thankyou! The paper was so lovely and thick, but not rough. I wish I still had some of the same.
