I posted one of these earlier in the gallery, but I shouldn't have. I'm glad I got only one comment...it is quite bad.
Here are both attempts - the top is the second try. I really like the loose style...my thinking is that there are things I can't do in acrylic that I can do in watercolor. I prefer to use the watercolor for those things.
Its emphasis on lights and darks, and the "Dean Crouser" look (if there's a name for that style, I'm unaware.)
I seem to be doing okay until I get to the stripes...the details that make him a Bobcat. They look awful...to harsh. When I try to soften them, they diffuse too much and lose their distinction as stripes. Any thoughts?
