For Wet Media Kitchen. We have started using gouache, which I don't have much experience with. Sometimes I'm not sure what I'm doing when I paint with gouache, but I'm liking it. The creature in a phoenix: magical, long-lived bird, reborn from fire etc. 9in x 13in, gouache

Prompt: Pet

Alison's choice of prompt this week. Looks like finally did a prompt that wasn't a pretty lady. But I'm sure I'll get back to that next week since it is my choice. Here is a little girl and her giant magical whatever-it-is. 5in x 7in, gouache, ink

Illustration Concepts

So I got a little behind on posting stuff, but I am determined to get back on track. Here are two pieces from my illustration concepts class.

Next: Poster for the Fall of the House of Usher by Poe. 11in x 17in, gauche and ink.
