Drawing Flies 52_50 Winters Hope


Drawing Flies 52_50 Winters Hope

Original status: Original and Prints are available email me for information.

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

Tech Info- Watercolor and gouache on 140 lbs Arches watercolor paper.

Stared in my ususal way with this one. a quick sketch in pencil to block out the shapes. I then laid in the background wash, leaving white paper in the wing and tinsel body areas. Blocked in with water color, then finished off with the gouache.

I have swung this patterns on a couple of occasions on bright days when the water was clear. The pattern has not been productive for me.....yet!

Nice use of the space and technique.
