Beginning with watercolour sketches

I started by doing some experimental watercolour sketches…

I remembered using Dye-Na-Flow fabric paints sometime ago and the thought that these may give me the leaking, bleeding effect I am after in these sketches.

Using a colour I already had, I experimented before buying a set of colours appropriate for this project.

I experimented with diluting the inks as well as starting with dry and wet fabric. It took some time to get a feel for the inks and manage a required outcome.
