Benny and the Alligator
Benny and the Alligator, by Mary Stebbins Taitt
5 x 7, gouache on colored paper
I signed up for the next round of the sketchbook project, and since I am planning to take out the horrid paper it comes with, I decided to start right away. (I ordered a book, but it has not come yet). I am planning to make a book for my Grandson Frankie, And I painted this in gouache on colored paper. Looking at it now, I think I might need to work on it a little more. (e.g.: the shading on the neck and I forgot to paint the fingernails!). I want to keep it very simple. Painting the words was VERY difficult for me, my hands are not that steady. I may try a different "font" style, though that would lead to inconsistencies.
I added the new one on top the revised version. I mat still revise it further.
