No. 254

"Robert's Drake - Do over" Watercolor. After looking at yesterday's Robert's Drake, there were many items I did not like. I have discovered that sometimes I rely on the gouache as a crutch to fill in areas that I made an error in. This time I decided to use nothing but watercolor. Also, the body on the other Drake was too yellow and not enough of the deer hair showed thru. The other thing that was off were the proportions. So I think I corrected them on this version. A more loose interpretation without being overworked.

Yep, yep. We noticed all those terrible mistakes as well but just didn't want to say anything. :) Keep the fall palette going!
