Continued progress on the little puppets, lots of beading. Four down, six to go...
I was lucky enough to find these awesome Nature Magazines at an antiques shop nearby; I love the cover illustrations here by a person named Hexom. I think they are engravings, but not sure. Great colour and composition. And take a close look at that otters expression!! Not the happy-go-lucky fun loving little guys we thought we knew.
Take a white porcelain swan, gesso it, then paint any which way you want, and ta daaa, Rainbow Swan!
