5. Watercolor on gessoed mat board.
You can see here, when I placed the sienna wash over the shadow colors, I lost some detail. The leg now looks really funny. One thing that made me happy was the way the blue puddled up right where the shadow needs to fall behind his little shoulder. It's cool when those things happen! Next, I'm going to pull some highlights of straw out from the darker blue shadows in the background and attempt to fix his leg. I'll be adding shapes of muscles and trying to make his leg look like a real leg.
