Sketchbook Project: Capricorn

Capricorn, pen, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.
Hmmm... this one's kind of rough. I guess I can't like everything in my sketchbook.

This is another page for my "Uncharted Waters" book for the Sketchbook Project. This time the creature I drew was the constellation Capricorn. He's a goat (mine's more like a ram) with a fish's body, and has been depicted in artwork since Babylonian times.


  1. i like him.. but i don't think he'd swim very well.

  2. I like it! I bet they make salty goat cheese. :)

    I'm a Libra, born beneath the sign of a clinical instrument of weights and justice instead of a mythical star-beast.

    I think the yellows, sea foam green and blues work well together. It's a good page. Love the underwater theme too.

  3. Thanks everyone! You made me feel a little bit better about this one...


Comments make me smile!
