Far Fur! Challenge #44 - a Moose

More homework from Kate Johnson's watercolor texture class - fur. Far fur and close fur. I really like moose. Even though this one doesn't have a rack, it's still a moose. This was done with a 'travel' water color set on fake moleskin paper. Painted while overlooking the ocean from a camp (aka cabin) on Chebeague Island, Maine.

Very nice. I like this fast and spontaneous monochrome approach. It makes me think a bit of prehistoric art one can see in some places in the world in caves and rocky overhangs.

E.g. check out these pages for examples:
