|Encantado, pen, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.|
This time I drew a mythological creature from South America for my "Uncharted Waters" theme. The pink Boto dolphins in the Amazon River look so strange that the Brazilian people automatically assumed that they were magical beings. The Encantado would take human form to enjoy local parties because they love music and dancing. They'd also fall in love and seduce people who lived along the river.
It doesn't seem like a bad life! You're a human for parties, and swimming around as a dolphin during the work day!
