How Many Faces Can You See? - Major Menagerie's Travelling Circus

I created “Major Menagerie’s Travelling Circus” last year for a small exhibition where each artist was presented with a piece of A3 watercolour paper to fill how we liked.

I used my ‘Wash & Ink’ method. I splashed about some watercolour paint and then inked in what I saw within the random watercolour shapes. I first drew the pants. I expected that a character would then flow to fill said pants. However it took a different turn, face after face appeared and I drew them all in. It certainly made an unexpected and fun piece.

Watch the video to see how many faces you can count.
