WDE Dec 27 - Fun With Piggy

i am not very adventurous with color normally, but decided to play around this time. I suppose this would be called an expressionist pig.

ATC size (2.5 X 3.5 inches) watercolor and ink on Arches 140 lb hot press w/c paper. about 2 hours.

big one ...



little one... (actual size on 96ppi monitor)

Wow! I like it! Your color is gorgeous, a big lift compared to the real pig's very gray look. This one's fun! Good proportion and accuracy.

Nice work Mike. Someone in our watercolor society uses unusual colors in her paintings but everything works (like yours) because the values are right.
