washes, stains & tears of love




For a few months now I have been noticing a definite trend in stains and watercolour washes. I have always used light washes of watercolour in any illustrations that I do, as I love that feeling of transparency and wistfulness! With Valentine's day coming closer and closer I can't help but be inspired by all of this. Why not add a little stain to your cheeks and lips before you go out the door tomorrow, or quickly brush a little watercolour heart on a little ripped piece of paper and write a note to the one you love. I promise it'll make your day!
