Dinosaur Eating a Book for SCBWI Bulletin

I was recently inspired to play with a ink wash after seeing some beautiful work from a fellow artist. I took some Walnut ink that was sitting with my supplies, pulled out a sheet of hot press watercolor paper and began to play with the brush.

I am pretty happy with the work, though I wish the line work was a little thinner. It has been some time since I have done a complete work in brush that wasn’t digital.

I mixed a small bit of black ink to try to darken certain sections and to give it depth.

The subject is for the SCBWI bulletin, which has to do with book reviews.

The best compliment is that my son wants it on his wall.
