Jelly Hair No. 1

Watercolor painting, 12″W X 16″H

This is a fanciful watercolour illustration of a mythical-like creature that has orange jellyfish for hair. Soft, contrasting colours give this an ethereal, calm tone. I conducted a number of studies before producing the final piece; you can see several of them shown here.

Rooster and Iguana

Watercolor painting, 8″H X 10″W

Inspired by a visit to a few Caribbean islands, I painted this fanciful pairing of an iridescent rooster and a blue iguana. These two probably wouldn’t work together in real live, but it’s fun to imagine them as partners in crime.

I started a brief series on giraffes earlier in 2013, and this is one of my favorites. A giraffe sprouts its own foliage to keep its family well fed and shaded. Painted on Arches 300lb Coldpress with Winsor & Newton paints.
