Birthday Dancer

Another birthday illustration that never made it to the birthday…

Watercolors and ink on sketch paper — the thing about it is I keep working on paper that’s too small. It’s not that I intend that the illustration be too big for the paper, see, it just keeps happening.

I’ve gotta sketch in the sketchbook and move to using the projector or something. It’s was more fun painting on heavier paper (bristol or cold press are working for me these days).

Anyway, I like stuff about this, and am not so impressed with other stuff, and maybe this’ll be the root for something better someday. I have this idea, see, and a projector, and it’s already sketched out, but if it were bigger I could do this other stuff, see…
