Happy Animal Wednesday
When we were in Jamestown, we saw original (ORIGINAL!) watercolors from the 1600's - a John White had painted and taken back to England - he published a book of his watercolors and this was most Europeans' first look at the new world. The pictures are fantastic, very detailed, and specific - mostly plants and animals - but Indian's included also. I bought a book of the artwork and am going to work my way thru trying to copy some of the animals.
This is a rapidograph drawing of one of his awesome sea turtles. He'll get watercolored soon, but I like him alot in the black and white.
Can't you just hear him saying "Dude".
HAW to everyone
