DAY 30 Curiosity

Curiosity
4"x6"
DAY 30 - celebrate, celebrate, celebrate.  This wasn't as bad as some of the challenges that really seemed to go on forever.  I think I could still go on, but then after having done so many challenges, I already utilize a lot of the benefits every day anyway.  But always the good news is that you see so much wonderful work and get connected with new friends.  Will take some more time now to go through the pictures and just enjoy the work and creativity.

This is another miniature, 4"x6", and had a lot of fun with this little guy.  A friend, Julie Hollis, has done some butterflies landing on adult male lion noses, and they are an adorable story.   When I saw the pose of this little cub I thought the butterfly would be the perfect addition to tell the story.  I also wanted to try to tell the fur story another way without actually doing fur, so instead it is roughed color splotches.  I think it still reads as fur.  I used the saran wrap again to get some extrude in the background, to keep it really simple so the focus is on the cub's expression.  Must tell you that left ear  (right to us) and head position was pretty tricky for me and took a couple of shots to do.  

Thanks much for all the support and interest over the last 30 days, and stopping by.  Much appreciated!!

    1. Since it is different it remains to be seen if I can remember long enough to do it again. Glad you like it

    1. Thanks much Carol, appreciated your work this month, made me think. I have done animals but again am trying hard to have looser brushwork. Maybe the abstracts will help. Got to say I think I am hooked on them

    1. Thanks much Sheila, appreciate you a lot you know. I have to go back to your blog and reread your pattern posts again, I still haven’t got it figured out. Congratulations to you too for staying on top of the challenge with all you have going on. Your series idea worked out well and you have quite a few really successful painting out of this challenge

  5. I can't believe this beauty is only 4x6 inches. How charming! I love how you kept it loose and that saran wrap trick, I need to try that. Congrats on completing the challenge! I dd not do as well, but it has been a great month of lots of paintings, getting to peruse other artists work as well, and making new connections.
