This is just a fun idea I have seen and read about.  You splash watercolor on paper and then do an ink sketch over it.  Looks really great when the sketch is well detailed.  I will have to try that too.  But this was the first attempt I did on an old failed watercolor.

Now that's what I call fun art, Mary Lou.

I usually do this with birds, but I like how you did it with fish.  They look so happy in their spontaneous environment.

This is another old failed watercolor that I have done an ink sketch over.  Came out a bit crazy,,but was such fun to do.

Oh, Mary Lou, its craziness is its charm.  I love it. It's inspiring me to break open my storage bins and see what I can make come alive.

So happy that I have inspired you. I am sure you can do something completely abstract with this method.  It is really fun and I love seeing the shapes and letting my imagination create the picture. 🤔
