Blind Date

I did these two last night. Each is on a 4 x 6 canvas panel. I don't like how thick the outline is around their heads and limbs, but I got impatient and wanted to finish them. I used the only Permapaque marker I have which is pretty thick.

I experimented with the background painting it first with acrylic then putting a wash of dye ink over it and finally scribbling some caran d'ache on top and wetting it to blend.

They met on (I've decided they are sort of evolved dinosaurs.)

I gotta tell ya, weekly art is giving me more time to play with other things. My total amount of studio time per week is probably about the same, but I spend more time experimenting/learning.

i STILL think they look like rabbits and i just figgered out why. It's that little nose and the line that goes from the nose to the mouth - very rabbity. That and the long ears.
