Pee Wee the Elephant – Watercolor Painting Finished!

I also finished Pee Wee this morning, he is 8×8“ and is also done on the Canson Artboard, each painting I do on the board gets easier , it was a little tricky at first but it actually works well with the way I paint. Pee Wee is starring in my next painting also, it is a still life with some fruit, a bowl and of course Pee Wee, I will post some picture after.  i think the thing I like about Pee Wee is his texture, he is solid brass and very old and corroded, it is this rusted marred surface that drew me to him.

  1. Thank you Carol, Christiane, Dors, Terry, Liz, Pat and Joan. I loved the texture of this little guy. I am really enjoying doing the still life since I set up a shadow box in my studio, what a difference it makes getting a good contrast with light and shadow.

  2. Congratulations, Krista. Pee Wee is beautifully painted. I like your background with its nice play of light and shadows. The textures of Pee Wee's body are very well done. And Pee Wee has a lovely smile:-)
    I am pleased to see that you like the Canson Board – I have two of them with Arches CP and was hesitant to try them, but loved the idea of having the paper already on a rigid support and ready for varnishing.
    Have a nice evening!
