A Lion, the King of Cats and a Dire Wolf …

Have you sent for a Hahnemühle Freebie sample of The Collection Watercolor paper yet? Find how here.

Doodlewash prompt: Novel

When I looked at these two pages in my gouache/GelliArts ZigZag book, I immediately saw some figures. Instead of painting with more gouache, this time I squirkled with gel pens to bring out the shapes.

There must be a story behind these guys.

A Lion, the King of Cats and a Dire Wolf? Are they 1walking into a bar? And what is that strangely reflective surface they are on? Ice? A Mirror? Wow. What a novel that would make! Maybe I’ll figure out what it is, one of these days.

  1. I love these negative-painted, patterned animals! The African influence comes through as if you can see their genetic ancestry in living color! Marvelous!

  2. I showed this one to Mark. it’s pretty amazing how you can work this way. I wish I could. I never see things in the paint like you do. it’s a talent and you are so good at it
