Artwork Description

Watercolor and whatever else was lying around. Based on the classic German folk hero who may or may not have been telling the truth about his adventures...

Thank you! I eventually found gouache to be better for its opacity, but i still like some of the translucent things that can be done only with watercolor. Unfortunately, I never really mastered them... Sad

Thank you, Rita! That means a lot to mean to me coming from someone from Germany! This picture also has my attempt at an elaborate painted border with Munchausen's name on the frame, but I had to crop it because of scanner problems! (Grrr)

Raine, whenever I did imagine Münchhausen, he looked almost like you have painted him. SUPERB!

Art at its best.
