    This is pretty amazing!!! Lovely colors and the snake is really intriguing!!! What kind of paper is this on? (I seem to be ever curious about paper…lol)

  • thankyou, I did this on some mi tiente black that I had bought on the roll so its 1.2m wide. I had this painting planned out and I walked into the studio which was a loft over the shed and there was our local carpet snake having a sleep above my drawing board, so whats a girl to do except paint it in. Was very cooperative and stayed for a week..!!
