Midsummer Night

Hi everyone!

I did this one on hot press paper and really enjoyed it.

I also just placed an order for some aquabord and am excited to try it out as well.  A friend of mine made a cute colored pencil drawing of a giraffe on the aquabord so I want to make something to go w/ it.  I will post the pair when I finish my part.

Hope you have a great week!!!

Yeah for lions with crowns and little froggy friends. This is so charming and fabulous looking. I am amazed and the bold rich colors you achieved with the watercolor.
