AEDM 2011: Day 5 Watercolour pencils

My working table (this time the kitchen table) on the morning of November 4th (I´m posting each day what I created the day before).What´s all that cut cardboard? Pieces of cake mix, jelly powder and dessert boxes. Like this one:
Once cut they are the perfect size for my "Facing my fears" series. This is the first fear I put a face to: the fear of not being liked, which is eating me at the moment hence the teeth. A ghostly clown. That adds another layer that I haven´t been able to really work out.
He is not as friendly as he looked from afar.
This was my first real experience with watercolour pencils. They are actually my daughter´s pencils, so my public thanks to her. :) You can see them in the background.

The way you have coloured this has created an amazing effect - how clever.

Look forward to seeing what others you come up with.
