Title: Witche's Stew
Medium: Schmincke watercolours on Fontaine NOT 100% cotton watercolour paper


#inktober2017

Not exactly an ink drawing, but I wanted to try out that new watercolour paper I got recently. It's surprisingly smooth for cold pressed watercolour paper, and feels almost like hot pressed. Excellent for adding in lots of details.


Inspired by this poem by R.Lancaster:

Witche's Stew

Bubble, blubber, squirm and gloop,
Boiling broth of bat's tail soup.
Wobble, slobber, liquid goo,
Add the sole of one old shoe.
Spooky shadows dance around,
Of frogs and rats and snarling hounds.
Steam swirls rising to the roof,
Add one small ear and one old tooth.
Gnarly, scratchy, tickle and itch,
Stir round and round to make it rich.
Mushy, sticky, sizzle and stew,
They're making mischief just for you.


Loosely based on this reference:

What a charming character!  She reminds me of the main character in "The Little Witch" by Anne Elizabeth Bennett.  It is a very sweet book!

Thank you so much for making me curious about that story. I'm always on the lookout for children's classics to tell to my younger students. I've already ordered a used copy on Amazon. :D
