Remember my tidy art cupboard from last week with the watercolour splodges?

Well, I decided to do some smaller ones and make pictures from them...

Here's Jane Eyre. I still need to outline her in black pen so she stands out against the moor.

And here's Cathy from Wuthering Heights. I'm not sure about her - the eyes are squiffy - but I'm pleased with the wild hair!

I wonder what creations you've made in the past week... All are gathered over at Julia's Stamping Ground.

And here's this week's Giveaway - you can see more photos and get more info here. Just leave a comment on that post and I'll enter you in Sunday's draw to win it :-)


  1. Your pictures look stunning against the wonderful backgrounds you made. I love both of them. Your necklace is just beautiful, I won't leave a comment as I live in Australia and the postage would be too high but it is a lovely thing that you are going to give it away to a lucky WOYWWer.
    Have a great week,

  2. How lovely, If I recall Cathy was known for her squiffy eyes! Karen #71

  3. Godd skethches, andKathy looks just right as she was troubled when she was on them moors so it suits the mood
    Best wishes

  4. G'day Claire. Happy WOYWW day to you. I'm a returning WOYWW after almost a years break. Oh I love the water colour splodges bgs you have made. Your drawings are awesome...Im currently learning to draw and paint at a local gallery/studio...well I used to draw well and I am rekindling that...surprised myself with both my drawing and painting efforts indeed.

  5. Love your pencil sketches. I'm currently in the middle of Wuthering Heights.

  6. Lovely pencil sketches - and the backgrounds are great. Colours that give a real sense of the period of the person in the sketch. Evocative. Well done.

  7. Such a neat little art cupboard! So glad you were tempted to dip in and create! x Jo

  8. Oh how great..I often wonder what all these pieces and trials can possibly be used for..and this is a FAB way of doing that..love the moody moor!

  9. What a lovely way to use the backgrounds. Your drawings are great. Have a wonderful week, Chris # 35
