Animal totem Life Book page

It's week 25 over at Life Book and this week sees us having a go at painting animal whimsy's.. here is my first attempt!

I scribbed some notes and a couple of sketches in my notebook and doodled away merrily.. I don't normally share my notebook but I thought you might like a glimpse at the process.. for some reason my robin kept looking more like an owl!

I used a large sheet of watercolour paper as I knew it would be getting plenty of layers of water and paints thrown at it.. for the final layer I used acrylic paints..

 finished page..

I choose the robin for my totem animal as they seem to appear at special moments..

..they were my Mum's favourite bird when she was alive..
 they always make me smile and are reassuring to see :o))
