"Ready for Battle" water media by Texas artist Linda Bein

"Ready for Battle"
"Ready for Battle" has been evolving over the years.  It started as a watercolor abstract, close your eyes and draw three big objects on your paper.  Look at it and add a few lines where needed.  Select your color scheme and paint.  Well, I didn't like what appeared, so I took I wet brush and got rid of all my hard edges. Then I decided to put some gold paint on it.  A sword and shield began to appear.  Now Ready for Battle is almost ready.

Oakley was specially hand painted for someone in California, he sure is a handsome dog!  To bad I couldn't photograph it without the glare from the ornament!!!
