30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day 16
"A Little Tipsy" $95 Watercolor and Markers (11" x 11" image)
In honor of the hangover that I had this morning, after a really good time last night (see yesterday's blog), I decided to paint a crow who is getting into the wine, and he is a little tipsy! I did a contour drawing of the crow, which gives it the feeling of a caricature! Then I took an elegant writer calligraphy pen and drew on top of the original drawing. When I added watercolor paint, the elegant writer smears, which is an effect that I love. This was a pretty fast painting.
