Drawing Flies 52_10 McGinty

Drawing Flies 52_10 McGinty-Watercolor, Sharpie and Gouache

Original status: Available. Contact me for information.

Swing by Jason's blog to check out his rendition of the of the McGinty!

Tech Info- And now for something totally different! Boy this ended up totally different than what my intentions were. I will not tell you what I had originally planned because I will attempt to create it again. This was definately a more colorful approach. Not sure I am pleased with the results, but I will say that it is very different. A bit more graphical in nature almost cartoon like. Started by drawing with a Sharpie, then applying the watercolor layers. Finished up with a bit of gouache.

I really like your cartoon-ish style on this one and as always your background wash is great.

Jeff—I understand fully about things not being what you want, but I have to tell you, I think this may actually be my favorite. The graphical style just really sits well with my eye.

I just posted my version here along with one from my daughter:
