Camel Head

7x9.5 watercolor and ink on Ecosystem paper sketchbook; pen used was Lamy Safari with grey Noodler's ink.  This was done also over the weekend.  Camel reference courtesy Christine/WetCanvas and it was painted for current weekend drawing event in the All Media Art Events forum there.  The angle of his head and the way the light was causing pink, mauve and gold tones under the shadows made me want to tackle this difficult pose.  I was surprised to learn their lifespan is 40-50 years.
