PEEK-A-BOO LIZARD DONE & A CROW, OF COURSE






He's finished.


Peek-a-boo Lizard


11 x 14 Arches 140# coldpress paper
Daniel Smith pigments









And from a neat technique Carol Carter shared in the workshop I attended, I drew the crow and then used masking tape to tape the larger parts of the subject with masking fluid around the small edges to get it all covered.  

Next comes the wash behind it (and here's hoping the paper is good, unlike the piece I got in the workshop that was splotchy).

the lizard is great. I like the way you softened his spots.

Can't wait to see the crow.

What an eager little fellow the lizard is; there's something quite whimsical about him. You softened the spots just the right amount!
I am a fan of your crow paintings--all of them!
I like the silhouette of this one; look forward to seeing what's next.
