Les Deux Cochons

Les Deux Cochons Aquarelle

I doodlewashed something completely different this afternoon, as Philippe requested that I draw a pig. I took him up on his challenge and gave him not one, but two pigs. Take that! It was both fun and super hard. Pigs aren’t that easy to draw it turns out. But I kept trying and finally these little guys emerged.

I’m wanting to try a portrait of a person soon, but figured I should take baby steps, so I’m starting with pigs. I did a simple pen drawing and then used a pretty limited palette to add the watercolor. The pigs themselves were done with layered glazes of watered down Alizarin Crimson, and then I popped some Cobalt Blue into the shadows. I think these would also look good on a decorative plate along with my previous doodlewash of the rooster.
