This week I broke out of my comfort zone, a little, to paint something other than flowers. I painted from a photograph I took of a lizard my son rescued. The lizard fell in the fountain in our yard and was struggling to get out when Super Boy came to the rescue. Other than the usual challenges of drawing hands, the painting was straight forward. I hesitated for a moment before removing the resist from the lizard's spots, I really liked the way the pigment pooled around the resist.
But, in the end, I didn't know how the resist would hold up being left on the paper for a long period of time so I took it off. I am not unhappy with the end results....but those little rubbery bumps of resist were fun lizard skin.
