Dapper Flapper

This oh-so dapper fellow is about to jump from his cold rocky cliff ledge into the icy water below. Done today this 11x12 watercolor was first drawn with black pigma micron pen then washes applied, darks first. Part of a weekend drawing event on WetCanvas.com, he was drawn in 10 minutes and painted in 1/2 hour; photo courtesy Michelle. We have a 2 hour time limit to draw and paint an image out of 16 posted photos with a challenge added by the host. Michelle's challenge was to do a watercolor/pen wash or cut out paper depicting your subject. Stay tuned for my penguin made out of Veranda magazine pages. Hint: He's wearing pearls!
