The Weight of Words (Lonesome George Painting in Progress)

Detail of Weight of Words (Lonesome George Painting in Progress)
Watercolor, acrylic, wax crayon, graphite and collage on paper
Initial drawing of Lonesome George

In Process: watercolor

Further Process: watercolor, acrylic, wax crayon, graphite

Process: adding texture to the shell and paper collage to the background.
The paper text in the background of the painting is from a chewed up copy (courtesy of my puppy)
of James Ellroy's Black Dahlia.  I was enjoying reading it before the dog sunk her teeth in
I can only read desperate bits while adding them to the painting.  
Nearly complete...Some values will need to be punched up and pulled back  and a few other changes.
