Here you can see some of that texture created with salt and throwing of water which I spoke about in my last posting. More of the bumpy skin is created through lifting the color from places with pure water and a brush.
Although you might not believe it, doing this texture takes days and days - at least for me it does. But, it makes for some good times listening to radio, or music, or zoning out to a favorite t.v. show. Here is a close up of the texture on his shoulder as it stands so far. Long way to go yet! But did I tell you, it's fun? Ha ha! No problem getting in my 20 hours a week of painting with this guy!
Here is a closeup of that texture - it will be more defined when I place a darker color behind the blobs, making them stand out more.
Rhino is getting closer to being complete!
