"Sunny Goat" - 4" x 4", ink, watercolor and color pencil on watercolor Art Board
This painting of a cute pygmy goat kid will be available at my upcoming Open
Studio Garage Art Thing on September 25th (scroll down for more info).
I came up with this yellow & purple color scheme after painting two other goats in shades of orange and purple. Although the colors of this painting aren't exactly true-to-life, they're not as over-the-top as the orange goats. I titled it "Sunny Goat" because the yellow tones make him look sun-washed.
The original photo.
The cropped version to fit the square format. I also adjusted the contrast a bit.
Ink and watercolor applied at this stage. The colors are a little "off", but this was just a quick photo of the progress. After this, I painted a bit more and then added color pencil to finish it.
A detail of the finished piece.
