Watercolour version of a sketch that I received many compliments on. There is something so iherently similar about mushrooms and newts... like they are construced out of the same flaccid and flabby wet clay. I tried to contrast this moistness with the delicate dustiness of the moth. No, no newt species like this really exists... although there are some with a similar crest... none in woad-blue; this creature is of my own creation. The moth is inspired by a little powdery fellow I found struggling by an outhouse off a highway in Australia.
