(L) Sloth, ink pen and watercolor. (R) Toucanet, oil on paper.
Illustrations of a sloth in watercolor, and a toucanet painted in oils, from photos taken at the zoo. The sloth was sketched in pencil then drawn with ink Micron pens and colored with watercolors. The toucanet was an amazingly cute little guy with a huge personality to match his beak. It was done on Moleskine sketchbook paper that was primed with several layers of Golden GAC-100 acrylic polymer and painted with quick-drying oils.
Here’s a recently handpainted mural, featuring serene wisteria vines and flowers in a foyer leading into a master suite hallway. Many thanks to Viola Interior Design for bringing me in to work on this lovely project!
