Micro habitat assignment! In watercolor.
Took a bunch of the river rocks from the french drain around my house, put them in a box, then stuck some sticks, dirt, and leaves on it to create a scene.
Set up my own lighting and took way too many photos of the pile when trying to pick a good composition. Hahaha. I really like the little oak leaf with holes in it. :3
Anyway, inspiration from Alan Magee's gorgeous rock paintings!
This one is just watercolor - used mainly the large Pentel waterbrush, a toothbrush to flick on some splatter spots, and my left finger to smudge stuff. Took about 8 hours. Art copyright me. For display only. Please do not use without my permission.
