Politically Incorrect Smoking Wizard - work in progress


"you may regret not listening to the old wizard"......................
I think I have said before, inspiration arrives in many forms, funny this one reminds me of someone...


Sorry they are not the best of photographs but it is getting more difficult at this time of year to avoid using flash!

Tina, I just mix rock salt in with the paint mix. It isn't going to work on here, so have already altered it slightly but it works great with watercolour.
This is very heavy watercolour paper. I need it because I just wash colour around all over the place so it need to be strong to survive. Since I did this, I have also scrubbed it with kitchen towel which gives it a slightly different look.
And eer yep, this wizard smokes, although I might make it a pipe yet though!
