Garment illustration by Janet Tarjan Erl

Wise Wolf

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 22″h x22″w, 1997.

This was one of my Native Visions collection of illustrations where wildlife and Native American beadwork were combined together. Each design pays homage to an important animal in Native American mythology. The beadwork is painted to create the illusion of beads complete with imperfections. It was done in Photoshop, and I created my own custom bead brushes to do it. I admire wolves because they are intelligent, and I wanted to capture that quality in this artwork.

Painted in watercolor. Scanned into the computer, floated, painting enhancements, graphics, colors, effects, and text were done in Photoshop.
