Watercolor on a lazy summer afternoon was the perfect stress relief for today’s DS106 Daily Create, tdc1288. The task was to create a movie poster inspired by illustrator Faye Moorhouse. I haven’t painted with watercolors in ages and was surprised to find such paint in my art stash. I love how watercolors take on a life of their own and imperfection is beauty.

The brilliance of Oz is what called to me on this assignment. There’s a ray of hope in the journey to Oz, that brings the four unlikely friends together. When they learn that Oz is an illusion, they can finally see their gifts reflected through each others’ eyes.
