Goblin Raiders

This actually is the fourth watercolour I have painted (except from lessons at school ages ago... and I remember not having been too brilliant at it back then). When early in 2005 my "these bloody watercolours just don´t work for me"- curse was lifted I really enjoyed exploring this new medium.
This particular piece was a sort of outlet for agression. I had done so many of the sweet, joyful, merry flowerish illustrations (some of them can be found in the section colour II) that I just had to do something nasty, dirty, mean. I had sketched head and torso of the goblin in front some months previous, his pals sort of ... sneaked out of the paper while I was working.
