Ink and black watercolor on heavy Fabriano paper
Study of a lioness from my new drawing series. I start with a loose ink sketch and bring in splashes of black watercolor paint. The end result is modern but influenced by traditional ink wash painting.
I grew up inspired by the beautiful and strange animals that lurked along the Florida Gulf Coast. There's no time in my life that I haven't been obsessively sketching wildlife and trying to capture their gestures, mannerisms and personalities. I live and work in Redmond, WA -just outside of Seattle.
