Goats in a Tree #Watercolor #PenAndInk #Stillman&Birn

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.

I want to get enough of these fantasy step-outs out so people will be able to start drawing their own landscapes but I'm having trouble ...
