This weeks WetCanvas Weekly Drawing Event was hosted by Kathy with photos from the Virgin Islands.
I decided to do watercolour sketches of 3 of the photos.
1: Trunk Bay.
2: Bird of Paradise.
3: sea turtle.
Great fun and with limited time, these took me about 1/2 an hour each.

This weeks WetCanvas event was alot of fun.
I tried my hand at painting this giraffe in oils.
12" X 16". This painting took me about 5 hours if you don't include drying time.
I also had to capture these adorable ringtail Maki's. This one is watercolour and took me about half an hour in my 5X8 sketchbook. I actually like this one better!

This is an acrylic painting I created based on a photo provided by the WDE hostess this week. I had several attempts at this and I still need to do a little to this one. This is the first time I have used acrylics to do a painting. It is 9 x 11 in on canvas.
This is what I came up with for the First WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Event that I participated in. It is a portrait of the hostesses father done in Prismacolor pencils on pastel paper. There is not much of a likeness but i enjoyed the exercise and the challenge of drawing another portrait.
