Hounds of Annwn - Cwn Annwn

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

An experiment with Watercolor Pencils and with a different type of watercolor surface. Not overly fond of the surface, too rough for my tastes, but I am ok with how this came out. The "Cwn Annwn" or Hounds of Annwn are the hounds of the wild hunt. They bring the souls of the dead to the underworld. In Welsh mythology they are white hounds with red ears. I took a bit of artistic license and made them red-eyed instead.   Edited to fix some contrast issues

Dance With Me

Mix of a frustration story of trying to fit in, plus a bit about how I view music.
