Lazy River

anewday 26 Dec 2019

My mom said she wanted me to paint her a Bob swamp but with an alligator in it, haha. I didn't realize the back was supposed to just be a few trees as opposed to a wall of greenery, but I guess my alligator likes his privacy. Definitely ran out of room at the bottom, if I had to paint it again I would start the river much higher on the canvas. I really liked doing the mossy bits in the river that Bob added at the very end. This one is great for water line practice. Didn't have my regular paints, just a basic blue, green, black, red, and yellow, but it was a fun Christmas project.


I like this the greys and browns in the center w the gator being surrounded by more brilliant colors elsewhere make it stand out in a fun way.

Agree, the lighter colors really make this one!
