I kept the simple, earthy colors of this beautiful snake. Disguising his head and body was a bit challenging considering the composition. The circular flow of vibrant design tightens at the center and relaxes outwardly. I applied quick, loose, brush strokes with a 1-inch, angled, nylon brush which works well to insinuate scales. And because I like detail, I went in and defined these strokes and the resulting organic shapes.
