the hedgehog (and a watercolour doodle)

16 comments



I watched the Hedgehog on DVD last night, which is a wonderful French film, and I would highly recommend you check it out. Apart from the moving story itself, there were many scenes of crafting/drawing/filming/doing something creative - that being a (wannabe) creative person myself -  I'm such a sucker for those! There's something about watching the flow and movement of something beautiful being created that's kinda inspiring, don't you think? Well I know I was inspired, because I got out a tube of black watercolour paint that I've had for a while but never used, and started painting Paloma (the little girl in the movie) before the movie was finished (and let me tell you, going back and forth between looking down at a piece of paper and up to read the subtitles is not recommended! I had to rewind and replay some scenes a few times to keep on track, haha..). It's not much of a "painting", but I had fun doing it, and that's what matters, right?
 P.S. the winner of the Beta Accessories giveaway is #44 jhitomi. Congratulations! I'll be in touch shortly.

I have the book on my to read pile. I'd heard there'd be a movie but forgot about it entirely.
So thanks for showing us! I'm gonna buy it first chance I get.

And it's a very cute drawing you made:)

Ah, your movie recommendations are always worth while. I will now try to track this one down.

Your painting is so sweet! It reminds me of the drawing of Mary in ''Mary and Max'' :)
