Donkeys, Day 7

Yet another long day. A get-together that was supposed to last 2.5 hrs tops ran to 5 hrs, so I felt a bit rushed with this one.  I wasn't even intending to do another watercolor today but didn't have time for my other idea. I also changed my mind midway through about how I wanted to do the sky, which resulted in a mess. Oh, well; it's a draft, just a draft. If I do go with fanciful, stylized imagery, I'm going to have to think long and hard about how much "busyness" I want and where I want said busyness.

It's funny. I wasn't intending to do a white donkey, but the trees (and the sky) got so busy (hence the busyness comment above) that I thought simple was the way to go with my donkey of the day.

7 White Donkey

"White Donkey," watercolor and ink* on matboard
* I used both india ink and white acrylic ink. The india ink bled into the board, but the acrylic stayed nicely on top. However, I did have to apply a couple of coats of white to get it more opaque.
