For some reason, my husband decided he wanted a painting of a goat in a tree. Usually, I love painting goats or sheep, but for some reason I just wasn’t feeling it — we’re getting awfully gray weather here in Portland and it’s gumming up the creative works.
I ended up doing two versions for him. The watercolor was done using a reference photo that I got from the Morguefile archives. It was painted on Arches using M. Graham Cerulean Blue & Quinacridone Violet and Qor Indean Yellow.
Then I did a pen and ink using Pigma Microns, size .02 and .005, in my Stillman & Birn Alpha. I prefer the pen and ink, but hubby chose the watercolor to take to work.
