Goblin Raider

This is the second watercolour I made after the discovery of the technique.

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.
