The Innocent and a do over...

'The Innocent' - watercolour & Indian Ink 5x7 inches

When I was doing some smaller pieces of animal art last week, I started off intending to do Indian Ink with a watercolour wash.  However, I was a bit heavy handed with the watercolour and didn't like the results.  Then when it came to the Moody Cow, I reverted to my comfort zone of pointillism and liked the result so decided to re-do Tilting at Wind Farms in that style too. I'd also painted the lamb above which I planned to re-do but didn't quite get round to it.

Here's what the original horse looked like. You can see the final version in my previous post if you didn't see it already.

And here are some more of my sketches from the 75 day challenge which finished nearly 2 months ago but yet I'm still churning them out on my blog!!

I had an idea for some more whimsical illustrations, a little like my Twisty Towns but a little different. I'm going to be working on those today so pop back on Friday and let me know what you think. It's a bit of a departure from my usual animal paintings as sometimes I need a little light relief in the form of whimsy!

Today, I'm linking up with Alexandra's Sunday Sketches.

  10. Your animals are wonderful, there is a sweetness and gentleness( well maybe not the eagle) about them. I also checked out your post about Australia, I am always interested in what the rest of the world thinks of us, I've been to your country, we are drier and warmer and not so green.
