Doodle day - tree house

Using watercolour pencils reminds me of the "magic" colouring books you could buy years ago. You just put water on the page and the colours appeared, rather feint colours which quickly turned to a disapponting overall sepia with over enthusiastic brush work. I think my doodle this week owes a lot to subconcious memories of E H Shepard's illustrations in the A A Milne Winnie the Pooh books.

Happy Easter everyone.
