This project took 2 art classes to complete. The little puffin is made out of papier mache with a technique introduced to me by Joyce, my art teacher. So I named this puffin “Joycita” (with her permission!). She was then pasted onto a background made with gouache and watercolor paints.
I did a background wash on this paper for practice at the workshop last week. Then today, I opted to paint a puffin over that background. The result is the guy that you see–looking out over the horizon.
Here is a puffin done with ink and watercolor.
