Long, long time

It's been a long time but better late than never, I guess. I've been working on projects off and on but here's something in the meantime at least. I haven't had the opportunity to paint a lot unicorns lately, but I am trying out a new series of some of my smallest work. Watercolor paper adhered to 8 X 8 inch canvas panel. For the time being, I'm calling it simply, eyes, inspired by the beauty of the giraffe's facial structure. I hope to make at least ten, maybe more if I can. I did try out using graphite mixed in with the watercolor, layering it like a wash. A wash of white gesso might look nice for a finishing touch....
