Nile Crocodile by HouseofChabrier
HouseofChabrier

11" X 14" portrait of an Nile Crocodile based on the photograph of :http://ellmaus.deviantart.com/ Painted and drawn with her permission from her beautiful photo called Portrait of a Killer. I've been informed it's a Nile Crocodile, and you can tell by the way the teeth show pointing up and down. I'm not going to argue with anything that has that many teeth so now it's renamed.

      Thank you, I wanted to keep this drawing light and subtle. I'm glad you like it. I love reptiles. They are really fascinating and have wonderful textures.

      I accidently painted and drew this on the back of the Medusa drawing. I keep all those drawings in their books, and don't tear them out. I have never done this before, and it didn't hurt either drawing. Thank goodness I never press hard into the paper and dent it. I do these drawings with 2B through 9B woodless pencils and never bear down hard on the pencil. Still it bothers me I made the mistake. I never draw on the back of a drawing, and I really love the Medusa, but really like the Nile Crocodile. I guess i will either draw and paint another Crocodile which I was thinking of doing any way, or draw the Medusa on illustration board, and see about painting her completely in gouache. I guess I just made more work for myself! One of these days I better tackle the laundry and dishes again....I hate house work...!@#!#!@!#

      Well you can have a rotating picture frame or one in the middle that shows both sides instead of hanging on the wall .. call it the twin frame
