I did these 3 atcs when i was doodling with a black ink pen, then added color with watercolor pencils. i'm really happy with the 3rd one, and i'm thinking about doing a larger version to hang by our kids bookshelf with either lands from their favorite books, or maybe just diffrent locations in harry potter their current obsession...

A beautiful way to express a love of books.  I love how light and airy they look.

go right ahead and use the idea. i really like the watercolor pencils, i think i have more control than with regular paints. for filling a background, the paints give a more even look though.
