Charlotte the Cow

11x15 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper done this afternoon.  Part of a timed WetCanvas event, participants have 2 hours to choose a subject from their photos then paint it.  This sweet Charlotte cow took me one hour.  Starting with Koh-i-Noor Magic multicolored pencil, I lightly sketched the scene, then with black Tombow brush pen put in darkest darks of her eyes and the left side of her head.  This blended well with wet watercolor added next and throughout the composition.
