Billy for Alannah by SandieBlair Billy for Alannah by SandieBlair
Thank you to Alannah :iconalannahily: for allowing me to draw/paint her gorgeous picture of Billy the Ocelot. [link]
It started out as an acrylic painting on watercolor paper.
It ended up being an experiment with mixed media.
8 1/2"x11".

Acrylics
Prismacolor pencils
Watercolor pencils
white BlickStudio Fabriano cold press watercolor paper
blood sweat and tears ;)
