New Orleans Charm

I thought I'd add a mule to my continuing series of watercolor horses, drawings & paintings (this one is an 8.5" x 8.5" watercolor on Yupo paper). So far, there are 20 paintings/drawings of various sizes in this equine series. This mule was in New Orleans working faithfully and adding to the charm of the Quarter. I've entered the painting in the Watercolor Artist Competition--hope it makes it in. Prints and greeting cards of this image are available in my Etsy shop

Yupo paper is very slick and when used with watercolor can be wonderfully unpredictable. It's easy to rework areas, but it's not for artists who render tightly. It's great for loose, painterly effects.
