November 8, 2009 - Day 90

Da Vinci watercolor on 140 lb Langton cold press paper

Prepared this painting the same as yesterday by masking off the Meercat with tape and cutting off the excess. I then wet the paper and painted strips of blue and red. I then sprinkled ordinary table salt over the wet paint and let dry. I am really happy with the background.

I am almost happy with the Meercat but I think that it needs more detail but I am not sure how to achieve what I have pictured in my mind. If I do another furry animal tomorrow I am going to try using colored pencil once I reach this stage and see if that doesn't do the trick.
