"Rainbow Sharks"

5" x 7". gouache.

Kit pointed these out to me. It seems to me that the name is a rather grand-sounding misnomer, because they are neither prismatic, nor true sharks.

My girlfriend has four betta fish. One is a little orange fellow like this named "Human".

Saw one of these while at the Seattle Aquarium; so pretty!

8" x 10.5". ink.

Kit and I visited some friends in Portland. Here's the front of their house; a little cottage thing, pretty much blocked by green :)

We were home for only a few hours before I sketched in the digital color version from memory (before I forgot).

"Mermaid" and "Mermaid 2"

5" x 7". gouache. Face detail.

8" x 10". gouache on pastelboard. This is a new technique for me. Pastelboard is awesome for waterbased media! If you like watercolor or gouache, give it a try.
