(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 video of me painting details on a lily and talking a little bit about my painting process. Please check it out and subscribe to my channel if you'd like to see more video tutorials!
