Billy Goat Gruff

Greed. The children’s book “Three Billy Goats Gruff” teaches a lesson about greed as the story unfolds between 3 Billy Goats and the troll under the bridge. Gigglebox has a cute YouTube video that tells the story:

My goat is not for eating. He is a sweet fellow from the farm. Reference photo below:

Painted on 10 x 14 inch Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor block using the following watercolor paints: Prussian Blue, Burnt Sienna, French Ultramarine, Lamp Black, Permanent Rose, Sap Green, Sepia, Van Dyke Brown and white ink. Thanks to Louise De Masi for her guidance on paint colors to use for painting Billy

It’s Monday. Don’t let anyone “get your goat!”
