When I'm painting traditionally I try not to have too many surprises. Everything is carefully executed. I'm working on being a little more relaxed with my brushstrokes. But painting in water-colour for illustration, I just start out with a much more playful approach. Actually letting back runs and surprises happen. Just letting water-colour be "water" colour. And for that reason I just love creating for the illustration market. An agent would be awesome. Marketing is an art unto itself.
