about 23×33 inches or so.
Collage, Ink, Tea, Coffee, Liquid Gold Leaf, Gold Paint Pen, Black Gouache, Colored Pencils, Oil Pastel and White Acrylic on white Stonehenge and handmade deckled cream-colored Punjab paper.
I started off with a sketch of the impala on the Stonehenge paper. After inking in the outlines and some initial work on the head, I accidentally tore the paper and rather than throw it all away, I cut out the impala shape, which the tear hadn’t reached, and then pasted it on the handmade Punjab paper. Before pasting it on though, I stained (on purpose) the Punjab paper with tea and coffee, which, with the deckled edges, kind of gave it an animal hide look.
I kept the colors to strictly browns, gold, creams, ivory and black for an overall earthy tone.
