I found a watercolor I did way back in high school (I've gone through college and I'm working on my second degree now, mind you), and it was all rolled up and then smashed by things and well...it's not in the prettiest condition, but I love it anyhow.  It reminds me of how much better I've become at drawing (I slacked on the shading for this one), and it's just a nice little throwback.

Here's a closeup:

Here's the whole thing (it's in front of a window, so pardon the random shadows.  it's also not that washed out in real life, although it is faded.)  It's about 20x30 or something random like that, but I folded it and put it into a 16x20 frame.

It's watercolor and ink.  The watercolors were just those cheapy Crayola ones (that's why they're so faded), and I didn't want to get rid of the folds.  I just put it into a poster frame to protect it last week  Roll Eyes  Maybe eventually I'll press it or iron it...right now, I'm good.

As far as the subject goes, the teacher used to come up with the most random pairings.  This assignment's was: fish and lightbulbs.  Like those go together, right?

Hope you like!

I like how you made the base of the light bulb look like an animal- Beautiful work!
