DoodlewashDecember2021: Reindeer. I know – a bit late to the prompt!

Did you know that caribou (aka reindeer) are the only deer species in which both male and female have antlers?

Another test of the Paul Rubens’ precipatated colors. This small postcard size doesn’t give the colors a chance to really granulate. The colors are a bit dark, and it’s harder to get the contrast needed for drama.

I think I know what to do now, though, when working at this smaller size.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
