(mixed media; markers, pencils, pastels, gouache)
This was an attempt to do something a little different than the usual blood-soaked rexes. I just liked the idea of one crossing a river - it actually led directly to a piece I painted for a friend's wedding present, featuring elephants doing the same thing. I think any animal underwater has a strange ethereal grace. I should really revisit this one and do a more full-on piece.
