A playful and energetic goat, doing his daily habit of checking all his surroundings for more mischief. Really a nice sketch, Robert!

Dramatic Goat xp WDE thread 12-22-2017


Goat rules the log! (From 12-22-2017 WDE photo by Scattykat)
5" x 8" on large Moleskine watercolor journal.
Pentel Color Brush pens in black, sepia, gray and Aquash water brush.

Those pens are strange! Preloaded with color, it's a lot like watercolor but very strong. Watersoluble but not entirely, it just washes much lighter brushing water over it. The sketching colors are really nice. So is the included Aquash water brush. I will be reviewing the set today.

He does look mischievous! I left his rival out of the painting but maybe shouldn't have, he's focused on another one that's on the ground looking up like it just got knocked off.

Goats are mischievous. We have a bunch of them here at the farm and they like getting into things or getting out of their pen and roaming. Lots of fun. The one in the reference reminded me of our Nubian nanny goat, Kara. She is my favorite.

Nice one, Robert! It strikes me as having a bit of the feel of oriental ink painting.

Looks like he is standing in a precarious position. Nicely drawn. Gary

Re: Dramatic Goat xp WDE thread 12-22-2017

Thank you, Lamar! Yes, it struck me that way too. I've studied oriental painting on and off for some time and when I use brush pens it comes back to me. I think it's helped me simplify my compositions too. Purr thank you, Vivien and Gary. That was what I was going for - the compressed action, the intense motion of the goat. Precariously balanced, ready to push any contender off, or flip and turn back if another one came up from behind - and yet perfectly balanced because goat, all of them dream of being mountain goats and have the equipment.
