Standard

I painted this card for my Dad for Father’s Day. We love Horny toads, they’re so cute! One of the things I love about them, is their fat bellies and stubby tails. πŸ™‚

Chipmunk in Blackberry Bush~ Watercolor Painting

Available as a Fine Art Print

I’m now finished with my painting! Soon I’ll need to frame it and get it ready for the Art Show next month. Hopefully I can get my deer painting finished in time as well. My new Sable brush, that I mentioned earlier, did a good job, although…it wasn’t the same size that I had before. I think perhaps I’ll order another in a smaller size some time. But other than that, it’s what finished my painting and I think it turned out well. πŸ™‚

Fawn~ Watercolor Painting in Progress

Watercolor Fawn 001 copyHere is my latest painting in progress.

I’m not quite finished with his fur yet. I’m hoping to put some foliage around him.

I’m still waiting for my special Sable Brush that I ordered last month, but now it says that it may not arrive until next month. Bummer! So my chipmunk painting that I had been working on, may be stalled for a while longer. 😦

chipmunk in progression 001 blog chipmunk in progression 002 blogHere is an update on my latest painting. I got the berries mostly done, they may need a touch up here and there, and I started working on the chipmunk. I’ll need to work on the leaves, and satisfy myself on the final details and then it will all be done! πŸ™‚ Unless I can make due with the brushes I already have, finishing it may be slow. My favorite sable brush through the years has been loved too hard, and is now out of shape, and the poor thing isn’t working right for me anymore. So last month I ordered a new one off of amazon.com. The bad thing is that it’s being shipped from Europe, so it’s not expected to get here until the 20th. 😦 Mean while, I’ll see what I can do with what I’ve got or work on another project while I’m waiting. πŸ™‚
