"Tawny Tigers"

"Tawny Tigers" / 12 x 15" / watercolors, acrylics, gouache & ink on paper

This was another fun mish-mash of mixed media, for me. Now that I spend so much time working on a Cintiq, I truly relish opportunities to get my hands dirty. I must have "finished" and gone back into this drawing about three times, mostly because I just wanted to keep adding marks and playing with paint.

Of course, eventually you have to put the last nail in a piece, and get on with the show!

"Sublime Spectacle"

"Sublime Spectacle" / 14 x 17" 
watercolors, acrylics, gouache & ink on paper

This piece started as a quick ink sketch. But once I began layering colors & mediums on it, things just went bonkers. Of course, bonkers is my speciality.
