The Beaver

#doodlewashJune2022 prompt:  Beaver.

Did you know that a beaver can close his lips behind his incisor teeth, and hold his tongue tightly against the roof of his mouth, so that he can gnaw underwater without swallowing water?

This was another experiment to see if I could get that glisteny-wet look of wet fur by using gold and silver metallic paint. I kinda like it. I’ll have to play with this more, just for the fact that it scanned rather well. I’m not sure if that’s because of the brand of watercolor or the colors I used beneath the metallic. Possibly both.

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.
