This is the first step towards my next wooden construction like the hare and raccoon. I think I’ll call them “mystical animal icons.”
Anyway, the first step is the animal portrait. Like the others, it’s a 2 3/8″ diameter circle. I did a detailed drawing in pencil, then added ink and watercolor.
Now I’ll go through my various stampings and other goodies and compose my piece in preparation for the background painting.
