Purple Gargoyle Needs A Name, 8″ x 10″ watercolor on Arches 140#
Edit: His name is “Night Guardian”
I LOVE this guy! I’m really happy with him. I believe the paper made all the difference. Arches is the absolute best! I also used quinacrodone pigments, which are incredibly transparent — quin gold on the moon, belly, and wings; quin violet in the body. I used hooker’s green for underpainting, but I won’t do that again. I’m not completely happy with its effect as a complementary color.
