Drawing Flies 52_51 Gray Ghost

Drawing Flies 52_51 Gray Ghost

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

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

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

A Carrie Stevens Famous streamer creation made to imitate the rainbow smelt. I am not really pleased with the way this has turned out. Oh sure, I can blame it on a number of things going on right now. I would have liked to work a bit more transparent and the background was quite busy. I started to mess with things in the end (A huge mistake). Fortunately the 30 minute clock prevented me from turning this into a total disaster.

One more to go. I cannot believe it!

"One more to go..." hard to believe the whole year has flown by, Jeff! I've enjoyed this series as much as "365." Are you and Jason going to turn this into a book as well? Hope so. And I hope you keep "drawing flies!"

Jeff—I certainly know the feeling of getting into it and having things go sideways (my Ghost ended up in a very different direction than I had first wanted to go). Here's to looking at our 2011 project, and doing something fresh after so many flies!
