It’s day four! I was tagged to do the 3 pieces of art a day for 5 days, Art Challenge, by Mark Mitchell. Hey Mark, this is starting to feel like homework. The theme for today is “Fur, Fins and Feathers.” I put up something old and something new.
I would love to see Ruth of Ruth’s Artwork do the Art Challenge. I picked Ruth because of her amazing pen and ink/watercolor, mixed media, architectural illustrations. She also does wonderful animals. She does lots of fantastic commissions. I recommend you check out her site.
Make sure the lid is tight or your bait will get away.
I just completed this illustration for the fish story I’m working on. The large mouth bass studies were for the same project. The media on this one is watercolor, and pen and ink. It was an easy one to reference, since all I had to do is revisit my childhood. I hope you like it.
Here is the last one. It was all wet wash technique. I followed it with pen and ink for detail. I like the wet approach although this picture isn’t quite right for the project. Perhaps I need to do the pen and ink first. Any thoughts?
I’m working on a project involving large mouth bass. This is my first pass at a straight up watercolor. At this point I’m getting familiar with my subject. It is for a children’s book so this style is probably not child friendly enough.
