IF - Beneath

Waking The Witch- 18" x 20" pencil,watercolor & pitt pens

I was listening to Kate Bush today ( "...there's something....moving under...." ) when this fun prompt came in from Illustration Friday. The combo sent me back many years to a series of dreams featuring a creature I labeled The Sea Witch. I thought about making a cool digital collage, but since I haven't sketched in ages I decided to pull out some long neglected watercolor paper.

 

Haven't decided if it is worth listing  in my ArtSnark etsy shop. What do you think? The photo is a bit crap - doesn't show the colors in the eyes & lips at all. And I always have a hard time shooting the bumpy papers.... Of course it just sits around here collecting dust otherwise.


If you have a few minutes, pop on over to Illustration Friday & see how others interpret Beneath.  Feeling inspired? Add your own piece! Please let me know if you do. I'd love to see it.
