This picture was kind of just an experiment, I normally don't use canvas or acrylic. I kind of like the control acrylic has, because watercolor is pretty unpredictable.

My grandma said she would love a pelican, so this is what I came up with.
I ended up doing a yellowy-peach background on it afterwards, it looked really nice.
I'm not sure what the size is, it was pretty big though. I deviated from my usual material list and put some colored marker in the musical notes.
I did a few trees like this, but I only took pictures of this one. It's done on brown wrapping paper (which is really great because it comes in a huge roll so you can make your drawings as big as you want), 3D tape (for the leaves), white watercolor, white pencil, and ballpoint pen.
The size is about 35x24 inches.
It's completely original, and it's supposed to be some type of willow, but I'm working on a different shape of willow now.
I did both of these on paper about 18x24 inches, the fish is a little more than a foot from the tip of the tail to the nose.
I did the black one freehand and then traced it for the general shape of the red one.
The materials are just large drawing paper and ballpoint pen.
(If you click on them you can see the detail a little more clearly.)
