Simple images are sometimes the best ones. Acrylic on canvas 16”x20”. “Pushing up Daisies”
This is a watercolor painting of an old angry beaver. This illustration is possible going to be part of a graphic novel.
This is a hybrid piece of watercolor, acrylic, pen & ink. I lay down the bamboo with transparent black watercolor first then I start the first layer of the panda stencil which is the gray. After the gray dries (Usually speed up by hairdryer) I put the black stencil on.
Here is what the fist layers look like.
The next step is to ink on the branches and leaves. I finish the piece by putting down the gray again and hand painting white acrylic so that it looks more natural and the white and gray create natural shadows against each other.
This piece was a first of its kind for me in many ways. I used various techniques for it.
This is one of a series of 4 New England birds I illustrated. This is a watercolor and ink painting.
