Illustration Friday - Mysterious

Mysterious ©Caroline Soer 2010

I've shown this illustration before but thought it fitted this week's mysterious theme too.  This started life as a a watercolor that was allowed to dry with plastic wrap on top.  The plastic formed patterns in the paint in which I then 'found' these characters and defined them with watercolour crayons. A fun doodling exercise I do from time to time!

Here's another I've just finished - lots of strange hooded figures seemed to be within patterns formed by the plastic wrap -  it's a mystery how they get there!
