Okay, that's enough cute animals for now.

Animal Portraits



I love these little guys! I painted them in pastel (my old friend). I might do a few more little creatures, they're just so cute. I think they would be perfect to hang in a baby's room. . .

Animal Parade




So here is a new painting I did last week, painted in gouache. It was nice to step away from oil paints for awhile and get back into gouache, it's so much faster and I like that instant gratification. This one is pretty large at about three and a half feet wide. I would have made it even larger if I could find a piece of watercolor paper big enough! I prefer painting large, when it's too small I feel as if I don't have as much control over the paint. I wish now that I had given it some sort of background though, it feels too plain.
