Arty Gruffalo


It will soon be time for the next Bedford Booktastic festival so I have been thinking back to last year’s highly enjoyable event. I listened to authors and illustrators and what they had to say about their books. Axel Scheffler did a ‘draw along’ event and showed how to draw some of his famous characters. I then decided to get out The Gruffalo, one of the books he illustrated, and paint a scene from it with watercolours. This is my watercolour painting of the scene where Mouse tells Fox about the Gruffalo.


Arty Tree


Today I would like to share my watercolour tree with you. In the background there is a sunset but you might think of it as a rainbow. What do you think of the leaves? Should I try drawing another tree next or something else? Tell me below in the comments.
