Cross posted from AMAE forum, Weekend Drawing Event 11-13 December 09:
14.5x10.75 inches matboard, covered partly with gel medium (applied with a credit card), drawn in 5 minutes over existing WDE collage of a man on the edge of a fishing dock with a pole. (That WDE was in July '09)
After drawing the main ellie with black fine tip Sharpie I decided to draw another animal for company. I took 2 hours to paint in watercolor with small amount acrylic, then wiped off entire bg greenish wash. What texture you see is the matboard untouched areas. A bit of colored pencils added and Caran D'Ache watersoluble crayons. Hope you like the purple elephant and his big buddy just moseying along the trail.
