Mouse enjoys a nice read

I still don't have any energy for painting minis just yet -- well, I have the energy, it's just I hadn't found anything I wanted to paint. So I prefer to do these watercolors for the time being. I've put in an order for some Steve Barber samurai, and I actually look forward to painting those. I'm also working on the next project to commission Steve to do soon, hopefully.

Here's Mouse reading in what I call the watermelon carpet room (even though it's not the dominant carpet.) It's not evident in the painting, but I'm pretty sure he's reading some Conan the Cimmerian.

My personal favorite Mouse paintings are those with fancy carpets on the floor and famous paintings on the wall.

This is one of those rare instances when I get an in-progress photo of my art. All Mouse paintings start out as a pencil sketch. I follow them up with an inking using my brush pen (it's pen but has a brush instead of a nib -- great tool.) Then I end with the watercolor; peel off the masking tape, Done!


  1. Nice painting. I appreciate the high resolution photo. I dropped the picture into an editor, enlarged the image, and purely enjoyed exploring the painting. Your little mouse friend is a keeper.

  2. Carmen, you are a true renaissance dude! Great piece, grand character you are developing.
