Strong: #WorldWatercolorMonth2022

July is World Watercolor Month! To learn more about this, visit Doodlewash.

Did you know that elephants, able to carry up to 7 tons, are the strongest land mammal by pure strength? The blue whale can generate up to 600 horsepower due to special muscles in the tail. And the strongest animal by body weight? The dung beetle, able to  lift 1141 times their own weight!

While doing these silhouettes, I’ve been torn between adding highlights actually based on a light source, or using them purely to show more detail. I’ve been coming down on the side of detail. With this elephant though, I saw a stylized pattern happening, and decided to go with it. Who cares about realism anyway?

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.
