Day 19 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings another rooster :)
My hubby has been "bothering" me for a Puffin Painting. These are cool little birds...North Carolina Zoo has a nice Puffin exhibit where (at feeding time) one can spend way too much time observing them...
I am pre-posting this one a day early, as I am getting ready to leave town for the weekend...I will be "off the grid" until Monday...Till then :)
Day 16 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings another color and texture popping rooster...
I used palette knife to create this bad boy... There are days when I feel like getting messy - and messy I get when using the knife...I guess it's because I also supplement the knife with my fingers...There is nothing better than feeling buttery softness of the paint under your fingers :)
Day 7 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings another cow selfie!
Oh Boy! Did I have FUN with this one :)
I originally went for a light blue and green background, but it did not do that NOSE justice...It called for something less subdued and more lively...Once I settled on this background the painting just melded together...
Day 6 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings a cute little Panda Pear on creamy background.
Headache forced me to pick a subject that I was very comfortable with. Since I have painted this cub before, but in a monochromatic color scheme, he was the perfect choice for last night.
The background did give me a bit of grief. I started with bright gold and reds, but decided that it was a bit much...After various tries, I finally settled on the simple cream color applied with palette knife for texture.
