This is a sketch created in preparation for a watercolor painting. It is drawn on light sketching paper and is matted. The original sketch's image is 16" wide x 11" tall and matted size is 20" wide x 13" tall.
My mission as an artist is to inspire an appreciation for and curiosity about nature and its creatures by communicating the aesthetic beauty of this planet’s amazing creatures as they really are.
It is my hope that this appreciation will result in acts of empathy & stewardship towards these incredible creatures portrayed in my paintings.
