Provisions by yaamas Provisions by yaamas
A watercolor I did over the weekend, I call it...\"Provisions\"

Once there was an elf named Theodore, who was the subject of much laughter. For he had big ears and buck teeth. He would spend his days wandering the path between the green wood and the golden meadow. Feeling lonely and ashamed of his appearance one day, he happened upon a very old and gnarly tree. As he approached the aged tree he suddenly heard voices and one by one little white mice popped out from under the roots of this great tree. These mice were very different from the town folk who used to call Theodore names, for they were friendly and very fond of Theo\'s ears. From that day on, Theodore would visit his new found friends and would become their provider.

We all have a place and a purpose on this Earth. We were all specially and beautifully made, always stay true to who you are. ~JB

How much would you charge for an image like this and how long would it take to complete?

Gouache would have also been good because of the way the pigment of the leaves will go over the branches.

Nicely executed, you must be very happy with yourself :)

I actually use gesso instead of gouache for any opaque parts. It seems to work better and you can put washes over it without it lifting. Thanks for the kind words
