This is a two page spread. The first 1/4 of the spread (half a page) is with the new acrylics. The second quarter (1/2-page) is with a combination of watercolor, gouache and acrylics. Then, 1/8 spread (1/4 page in black watercolor, followed by Faber-Castelle pigment pens. The purpose of all that was to hopefully create something to which Mike could easily attach his work. (I hope).
Mike, please feel free to change any part of this piece, add to it, darken it, whatever, to make it work with your style. This could be one long eel, an eel coming out of a hole, two eels entwined, an eel being scooped up by a new, or any number of things--so I hope you enjoy it, Mike.
This completes my work in Andrea's mole. I have to gather up the pocket items, which I have already posted quite some time ago, and pack up the mole, but since it is Sunday, I cannot mail it. Mike, it should be on its way to you within a few days.
