A 'just for fun' painting of a gryphon skimming over the water's surface, causing a wake of ripples and spray! I mean, wouldn't you?? :)

Ink and watercolor on 6" x 18" cold press watercolor paper.

I like the mixture of the clearly defined and delineated gryphon and the progressively looser and rougher water, nice job!

This is just stunning. I love how the refined blends into the less refined water color techniques used. I think cold press was a good choice can make the refined more solid and tight but you still can get that looseness with the paper.

I like the size you chose for the paper, it really adds to the overall feel. And I especially like your transition between the water and the watercolor and the extremely high level of detail on the gryphon.
Great job.

Wow. This is just... wow!
May I use this to decorate my folder for Mythology class? I get credit for having the folder decorated, content has no effect on the grade, and I won't be making any money at all. It'll just be this picture on the outside of my folder.

IfI were a gryphon flying over a convinently placed body of water, yes, I would so do that XD

Your wings are perfect! I always have trouble with the primary flight feathers.
And the way that you blot the paint after the water! Quite inspiring!
