I posted this originally in watercolor. It was suggested to put it here to.
300 lb wc paper soaked in water than a wash put down. Now the fun part sprinkle with Kosher salt. Wait to see what happens. This was going to be a flower but.... The tail was drawn in graphite than watercolor and colored pencil adds the highlights. O' I forgot also used friskit. Now a frame. I found the drift wood on the lake I live on. A copy is on its way to California to the fellow who photographed this whale wind surfing.
