Day 2 - The Voice Of Billy Connolly





"Fame is being asked to sign your autograph on the back of a cigarette packet."

Billy Connolly

I'm finding the roughness of the Khadi paper quite a challenge, the ink seems to hit and miss as I sketch and accuracy with watercolour placement seems impossible. However, it is bringing out an 'artistic' feel to my creations, making everything look nice and loose.

Today's inspiration was drawn from the comedian Billy Connolly who I admire equally for his endless excitement and energy as his natural wit.

I like him too, very funny guy. The paper has given an interesting texture to the shadow that works really well. It's a nice shadow colour too.

I just love reading quotations from verious authors...this is going to be quite a lovely collection by the time the end of the month rolls around. Clever take on the "Voices" theme...that brain of yours is always in motion and always in high gear! :)
